I'll soon be flying. I have made one of those Tape Measure antennas
<http://home.att.net/%7Ejleggio/projects/rdf/tape_bm.htm> just for the
trip. IMO, it works as well as an Elk. It certainly is easier to fit in
the luggage. I'll even keep my Pryme Al-800 in the luggage but I will
take my Smiley antenna with my radios on board. Simply, in the worst
case, the Smiley can also be used for LEO satellites.
The Tape Measure antenna is easy to put together, the way I made it, all
parts are held by the coax, so none will get lost.
