1/4 wavelength Inverted L antenna for 160 meters. Post 1827.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq4mbrRihrw If you want to get on 160 meters, but don't have the space needed for a full length vertical or horizontal dipole, then this Inverted L antenna from VE3IKU may be what you're looking for.  This antenna has a vertical length of 35 feet/10.67 meters and a horizontal spread of 94 feet/28.65 meters. According to VE3IKU, this 160 meter antenna "needs no tuner, fits on a city lot, and is very efficient."  The introduction to the video features two "classic" HF antennas--Hiram Percy Maxim's 1AW antenna and the top-loaded vertical on the ill-fated "RMS Titanic."
