A top band aerial for small gardens

Thanks to Ray of the "Radio Workshop" for this interesting and easily-made 160 meter antenna for restricted spaces (such as small gardens).  

While this antenna won't dominate the "top band", it will get you on the air with a decent signal.

Here are some general comments from Ray:

I have a small garden but my favourite amateur band is 160 metres. Problem? Yes, but there is a way round the problem. The aerial I describe in the video isn't the best, but it will get you on top band with, in my case, surprising results. And it's great on 80 metres through to 10.


Thanks for joining us today.
