Here's a fascinating antenna article from Drexel University which describes the use of sprayed-on antennas for medical, industrial, and communications applications.  Such technology could prove useful for radio amateurs and first responders as they try to reestablish communications damaged by natural or human-made disasters.  Imagine going to your ARRL Field Day site and spraying your antenna to a wooden wall, tree, or picnic table.  Perhaps the "antenna in a can" will become reality sooner than you think.
