Working 160M From a Small Lot




Antenna 160 meter Links


Antenne Verticale 18m pourle 30/80/160m, F6GCP
An 80m version 11m in vertical, and 9m in Horizontal was tested prior to the 160m version. This version allowed me to contact, in 2 x 45mn, 13 stations JA the evening and some stations W6 / W7 / XE the morning. I had not contacted JA stations since my arrival in the 77, using a dipole of 2x20m inverted V, with the tip 7m from the ground

Dipolo 80-160 trappolato di, IZ3GAK
Il dipolo per funzionare non e' neccessario che sia orizzontale, neanche a V invertita, puo' essere anche a U, a zig-zag ecc. cosi ho sperimentato una versione a "V + U" come si vede in figura 1

Dipolo filare per i 160 metri, I5-4666FI
Il dipolo in questione, del tipo caricato, misura circa 20 metri per braccio, e l'unica posizione con cui riuscivo a collocare in modo soddisfacente i suoi 40 metri di lunghezza era in posizione sloper

Dipolo per i 160 metri di soli 40 mt caricato al centro, IZ1NERDipolo caricato al centro per i 160m di soli 40m di lunghezza,quindi circa il 50% di raccorciamento
