If you want to get on 160 meters, but don't have the space needed for a full length vertical or horizontal dipole, then this Inverted L antenna from VE3IKU may be what you're looking for. This antenna has a vertical length of 35 feet/10.67 meters and a horizontal spread of 94 feet/28.65 meters.
According to VE3IKU, this 160 meter antenna "needs no tuner, fits on a city lot, and is very efficient." The introduction to the video features two "classic" HF antennas--Hiram Percy Maxim's 1AW antenna and the top-loaded vertical on the ill-fated "RMS Titanic."
