This is post 2403 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.


An inverted L antenna makes an excellent 160 meter antenna for radio amateurs short on space. 

In this video, Steve Ellington modifies a design by K2AV and erects a 160 meter antenna in his back yard.

The key to an efficient 160 meter vertical antenna is an extensive ground radial system.  In this case, Steve uses an interlocking counterpoise to provide the ground return for his antenna.  The antenna works despite space constraints.
