N4LQ Multiband Inverted L Antenna. Post 2053.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:

If you live on a small urban lot and want a fairly efficient multiband HF antenna covering 160 meters through 10 meters, then this video from N4LQ might be helpful.

As originally designed, the inverted L measured 100-feet/30.48 meters and used a MFJ-998 antenna "tuner" to control the mismatch found on the antenna.  Later, N4LQ extended the antenna length to 200-feet/60.97 meters and got better results.

The key to this antenna is to get as much vertical wire in the air as possible before adding the inverted L section at the top. Be sure to install a basic ground radial or counterpoise system to complete the project.
