Linear Loaded Wire Antennas
I have done a lot of research on wire antennas on the internet as well as other places and developed aninterest in linear loading

Loop Antenna Info
I have personally used a 160 meter band Horizontal Full Wave Loop antenna with very good success. I worked all 50 states and several countries with 100 Watts

Multibander sloper
To support an antenna, I have no tower, and only two trees that aren't too close to a house. These trees are only 70 ft 21 m apart, and too small to support anything higher than 33 ft 10 m

Polarized antenna the Linear loaded
This is a vertically and horizontally polarized antenna the Linear loaded 1/4 wave length vertical radiator introduces very little loss

Topband with its wavelenght 160m
Dimensons are explained on the picture. During my initial testing was resonance on 1850kHz
