With the advent of radio, the snake was not forgotten either.
In military affairs, a similar method of improving radio communications was used in the early 20th century in the Russian and American fleets. In the Russo-Japanese War, thanks to the antenna raised by the kite, the crew of the damaged damaged destroyer Bravy had the ability to communicate by radio with Vladivostok, from where the tug was sent. In the US, the Army Corps of Signals has been hoisting radio antennas since 1905 with a kite, kite trains or, in calm weather, kite-balloon bundles. The system was designed by Sergeant King, which is why it was called “King Snake”. It was mass-produced in three versions, differing in size, and was included in the set of field radio stations until about 1920.
This is how you can raise the antennas to 1.8 MHz. and other low-frequency ranges.
You can even raise a collinear antenna. As a child, I was engaged in box kites, I liked that it is launched by hand even with a slight wind, and most importantly, it hangs at 45-50 degrees. For weeks at an altitude of about 400 meters, until the wind tore the halyard …. By the way, on submarines in the rescue kit there was such a design, so it’s not my idea, just remembered ..
