N4LQ Multiband Inverted L Antenna. Post #1336.

Operating a multiband HF antenna covering 160 through 10 meters on a city lot can be quite a challenge.  In this video, Steve Ellington (N4LQ) shows us how a modified inverted L antenna, a counterpoise system, and a wide range antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") can simplify your task. Steve says he used 100-feet/30.48 meters of wire for the inverted L, a counterpoise system, and a MFJ-998 antenna "tuner" to get 160 meter to 10 meter coverage.  Hopefully, some of Steve's suggestions can help you get on 160 meters without too much difficulty.
