Read recently that a company is testing a blimp that is tethered at 800 ft that they say covers the equivalent area as 25 cell towers. It is set up to automatically retract to ground level in bad weather that it isnít designed to handle. They originally designed it as a floating wind turbine but when the price of oil dropped it wasnít economical so the repurposed the design.
