A 160 meter end fed halfwave antenna on 630 meters?

Thanks to Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) for this interesting experiment in the 630 meter amateur radio band.  Kevin erected this very long end fed wire to see what he could do in this fairly new amateur/ham radio band.  His results were quite good, considering the low power and antenna requirements of this band just below the standard broadcast (MW) band.

Here are some of Kevin's observations:

"I put up a 160 meter end fed half wave antenna to get a feel for how it behaves, gathering more data and experience before the big spiral delta thingy build in a month. (hopefully, still on pandemic lockdown) What I found surprised me! If you like my videos, please subscribe here: http://www.youtube.com/user/loughkb?s...
