If you live on a small urban lot, erecting a full-sized 80 meter dipole antenna will present a difficult challenge. According to Australian ham Peter Parker (VK3YE), a simple 40 meter dipole antenna can be modified to work at 3.5 MHz (80 meters) by adding end-loading coils. Although the "transformed" antenna won't be as efficient as a full-length 80 meter dipole, it will get you on the air with a somewhat narrower bandwidth. Peter's adaptation comes from an original design by VK5AH.
