Cheap Compact 160m Antenna Ideas


The 160-meter Amateur Radio Band provides lots of excitement when the "Top Band" is open.  Unfortunately, the size and length of 160-meter antennas often make this band unusable for many radio amateurs.

But don't give up, yet.  In this video from Callum (M0MCX), we see several modified antenna ideas that can get you on 160-meters with a decent signal.  Among the antennas offered are inverted Ls, loaded verticals, compact dipoles, sloppers, and even loop antennas.

Here are some comments from Callum (M0MCX):
