Here's an interesting variation of the classic Inverted L Antenna that can get you on the 160 meter Amateur Radio band without taking up much space.  The antenna is based on work done by Guy (K2AV) and built by Steve Ellington. Steve's antenna has a vertical height of 70-feet/21.34 meters and a horizontal length of 80-feet/24.39 meters.  The elevated folded counterpoise is 66-feet/20.12 meters long and mounted 8-feet/2.43 meters above ground. Hopefully, this antenna can get you on 160 meters.
