If you live on a large piece of property and want to explore the fascinating world of 160 meters, you may find this extra long antenna interesting.

Thanks to Bob Holowenko for showing us his winter 160 meter antenna. According to Bob, this antenna is a real powerhouse on the "Gentlemen's Band."

Here's how Bob describes his antenna:

"1000ft of 14ga AWG wire (7-strand) and some rope make one of the best performing antennas I've played with. This is made from 127ft of vertical wire, 6 127ft radials, and a pile of random wire, including a fence, make for a fun little antenna."

For your convenience, here's the conversion from feet to meters:

1000 ft=304.87 meters. 127 feet=38.71 meters.

If you have room on your property, you may want to build one of Bob's 160 meter antennas.

Thanks for joining us today.
