Cheap, compact 160m antenna ideas


The 160-meter Amateur Radio Band is a fascinating slice of the RF spectrum.  Unfortunately, antennas for the "Top Band" tend to be large and a bit unwieldy.

In this video from Callum (M0MCX), we learn about several reduced length 160-meter antennas that can used where space is at a premium.

Included in this list are the inverted L, sloper, loaded vertical, compact dipole, and the Halo/Loop antennas.
