This is post 2528 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Operating the 80 meter or 160 meter amateur radio bands from a small urban lot presents a difficult challenge to most radio amateurs.

In this video, Callum (M0MCX) discusses several ways to get on those bands without losing too much antenna efficiency.  

According to Callum, linear loading can help you operate on the lower HF bands without much trouble.

Here are some of Callum's comments:

Inverted Ls do work for these low bands but what if you don't even have that amount of space? Perhaps linear loading an inverted L might do the trick, although the bandwidth might be tight - and the impedance might not be perfect either. Anyway, we'll see. HEY!
