Maybe it is. Maybe they just want a "real" antenna. For radio stuff...
Replace the usual aluminum pole with one of another material.
I doubt if fiber glass is any good though, it's probably flexes too much.
(picture a 4m yagi antenna on a 10m glass fiber pole, swinging
to and fro in 6-7 bft...)
Carbon would be better, but might be too conductive... I don't know,
never tried it.
BTW.. Hi Andrew. :-) long time no type.
Like kites.... look at http://www.win.tue.nl/~pp/kites/
