Pneumatic Antenna Launcher

antenna launcher

I’ve always wondered if HAM radio would be an interesting hobby. Well if I got to design as many antenna launching devices as these guys it would be worth it. The pneumatic gun fires a tennis ball that trails a fishing line. Once the line is in the tree it can be used hoist the actual antenna. The site has plans for a large number of devices with different triggering mechanisms and sizes. Some are even small enough to fit in a ten gallon tub.
