I was thinking about something like this, about 25 years ago.  But rather than a free-flying balloon, I felt that an aerostat configuration would be better.  Further, I figured that a bidirectional optical fiber link would be useful, such as:
An otherwise-unjacketed optical fiber, but with a woven Kevlar strength covering, would be useful.  
Obviously, the FAA wouldn't approve, but that doesn't keep us from imagining, huh?
