SJ2W Contest Station - 160 antenna

The main antenna for the 160m band is a 39m high vertical. The antenna consist of 29m of WIBE tower sections with an insulated base and a top tube which is 10m long. The antenna is tuned to 50 ohms through a tapped inductor which also makes the antenna DC grounded. The total length of radials are about 3km, each one alteast 1/4wl long

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

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


Linear loaded short dipole 21Mhz For my amateur radio activities on the HF bands I only have a 3.6 m wide balcony available for antennas. After some study I decided to experiment with a shortened dipole for the 15 m band
