Top Band Vertical Small Garden/Backyard Antenna


Erecting a 160-Meter ("Top Band") antenna can be challenging, especially if you live on a small urban lot.

In this video, Mike (M0MSN) shows us how a "DX Commander HF Antenna" and a homemade 160 Meter loading coil can get you on the air with an acceptable signal.

Here are some comments from Mike (M0MSN):

HAM RADIO: Top Band Vertical Small Garden /Back Yard - 160M band DX Commander MOD. Base loading Coil for 160M Top Band. You asked me to build a small garden/ back yard Antenna for the 160M band so I used the DX Commander as the starting point. turn your 80M inverted L into a Top band antenna or use your 40M vertical. Please note that both antennas are a compromise and will not work as well as a full size antenna build for the bands. Still have fun and give it a go... Please subscribe and like. Cheers and Many thanks for watching Mike - M0MSN P.S. do not take my word for it, give it a go for yourself. @DX Commander
