The Many Uses Of Kites

By Yageur Fecuent

Go Fly a Kite

Before aircrafts, balloons and rockets took over the job of

photography and meteorology in the 19th and 20th century,

kites were used. They aren't just simple toys anymore.

Marconi used kites in his early radio experiments, and in

World War II, airmen were provided with a box kite and

transmitter, known as the 'Gibson Girl', along with their

rubber dinghy. Some radio hams still use kites. During World

War II, kites were used for anti-aircraft target practice,

for man lifting and to deter enemy aircraft.

In China, kites were used for military signaling during the

sixth and eighth centuries. In 1232, thousands of kites

were release over enemy lines inciting prisoners to revolt.

During the Peninsular War leaflets were dropped from kites.

Kites were used as a form of airmail between Maryland and

Virginia during the American Civil War.

During the 19th century, kites resembled birds of prey in

England and France for hunting grouse and partridge. China

has used kites with loud noise-makers attached to drive

game.

Reportedly, a kite was used to carry the first line across

the Niagara River in order to build the bridge from New York

State to Canada. In the same way, kites have been used to

carry telephone wires.

Many kites are elaborately decorated. The Artistic Kite

Group promotes kites as an art form. For centuries in the

East, kites have been used for fishing. This is done to

reach places you normally can't get to and to prevent the

'plop' sound associated with casting your line in the water.

The art of training falcons and hawks to hunt is very

ancient and breathtaking to watch. Some falcons fly at

heights up to 1000 feet but many never bother flying over

200 ft. By attaching a bait to a high-flying kite, you can

train it to fly higher than 200 feet.

Many people find kite flying to be relaxing, and a good way

to unwind. It also gets you out into the fresh air and

provides a bit of exercise.

Kites are now use for kite-sailing, kite-surfing, kite-

skiing and kite-buggying. There are two kinds of kite

races. One is the upwind kite race where contestants drag

strong pulling kites upwind and the other is downwind kite

races where contestants launch a kite and runs downwind

without allowing his kite to touch the ground. The first is

purely a test of strength

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
