How I built a simple 160m top band transmitting antenna for L4.50 that actually works

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is post 2356 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Thanks to Clint of "Oxford Shortwave Log" for this inspiring 160 meter transmitting antenna that doesn't require a lot of wire or real estate. Despite Clint's modest urban lot, this antenna works without causing major tuning adjustments or RFI problems. If you're confined to limited space or must operate under deed-restricted circumstances, you may find a solution to these issues with Clint's antenna. Here are some of Clint's remarks: Hi there, this video demonstrates how it's possible to build a transmitting antenna for top band that doesn't involve 100's of metres of wire or significant height - and it actually works pretty well. Thanks for watching. Keep safe. ----- Thanks for joining us today. Aloha es
