N7EAA's 65 foot vertical for 160M. Post #1255.

Here's a dual band top loaded vertical antenna that covers both the 160 meter and 80 meter amateur radio bands.  For this project, N7EAA used a MFJ pipe for $200, galvanized steel electrical fence wire, and inexpensive poly rope for guy supports.  You'll probably need some help assembling and erecting this antenna. Like all vertical antennas, you will need a good ground radial or counterpoise system.  In this video, N7EAA attaches his ground system to an aluminum plate at ground level.
