Top Band Vertical Small Garden/Back Yard Antenna


If you want to operate on Amateur Radio's "Top Band" (160 meters), but don't have enough space for an antenna, please follow the instructions in this well-organized video from Mike (M0MSN).

The key to succeeding with a short vertical antenna on this band is a homemade coil to compensate for the loss of full antenna length.

Mike takes you step-by-step in the making this coil and shows you how to adjust your vertical to cover "Top Band."

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 not 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
