Don't you think that a wire fastened to the surface would likely be less hassle, less expensive, less obvious, have less resistance, be adjustable, and be more reliable than spraying this stuff on?

I'm sure there are a few uses for this spray-on stuff, but for the average ham wanting a stealth antenna, I can't think of many.

Here in So. Cal, spraying anything on a public visible surface is called Grafitti, and is a jailable offense unless proven otherwise.... heh...

This would be a good idea for a CB'er rght?
All in fun...

I had seen a video of a guy using a stream of salt ocean water for a 2 meter antenna. That was interesting.

I like wire or tubing too. Most hams do.

This guy sure aint much of a public speaker, couldn't get through all of that.

I am, however, all for any new antenna tech though.
