Ideas for compact 80m/160m antennas


Low Band antennas (80m/160m) require lots of room for peak performance.  Is it possible to get decent performance by using linear loading of an inverted L or some other antenna?

In this video, Callum (M0MCX) explores several ideas for compact low band antennas.

Here are some comments from Callum:

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!
