Building and using an antenna for 160 and 80 meters can be a definite challenge for those of us living on small urban lots. One of the best ways to reach these bands is to design, construct, and use the classic "Inverted L" Antenna. In this video, GreggW. (OH2FFY) does an excellent job of explaining the theory and practical construction procedures needed to make an effective, simple, and inexpensive Inverted L to fit your property. Now that propagation is favoring 160, 80, and 40 meters, the inverted L should be an antenna worth considering.
