A top band aerial for small gardens. Post 1881.

Another outstanding video tutorial from Ray of "The Radio Workshop."  In this video, Ray show us how to build a 160 meter antenna that fits into a space occupied by a small garden.  Most radio amateurs living on a small urban lot can appreciate the time and effort that goes into building an effective 160 meter antenna for a limited space.

Although Ray admits his antenna isn't the most efficient, it will get you on "top band" with a reasonable signal.  As an added bonus, the antenna also covers all amateur/ham radio bands from 80 meters through 10 meters.  Don't deny yourself the pleasure of working on this fascinating slice of the radio spectrum.  Build this antenna over the weekend and see how well it works in your location.
