Cheap Compact 160m Antenna Ideas.


 

The 160 meter Amateur Radio Band ("Top Band") can be an exciting place to expand your ham radio experience.  The main drawback to exploring this "classic" band is the need for large antenna systems.

According to UK radio amateur Callum (M0MCX), there are several ways to build compact, yet efficient antennas for this often overlooked band.

In this video, Callum considers several Top Band antennas, including the sloper, inverted L, loaded vertical, the Halo (Loop), and the compact dipole.
