Half wave antenna for 160m

The load impedance is about 4700 ohms, so let's use a 4k7 ohm resistor as the load and see where it tunes up.Best swr can be determined by using an alligator lead and a scalpel blade initially

Shortwavers often have difficulty installing full-sized antennas for operation on low-frequency KB bands. One of the possible variants of the shortened about two times dipole range of 160 m is shown in the figure

Panoramica sulle antenne per la ricezione in 160 metri
Sulle bande basse, ed in particolare in 160 metri, e' importante poter disporre di un'antenna in ricezione separata da quella usata in trasmissione

Reduced-Size Half Sloper For 160 Meters,
Have you ever thought of trying 160 meters? Wintertime is the perfect time for exploring the Top Band. The atmosphere is relatively quiet, so you can mine 160 meters for all it's worth-lots of stateside contacts and plenty of DX

160 Meter sloper
This antenna ships 70' in length and will be trimmed back to 68' or less on installation. It works best when attached to your tower/pole at about the 45-50' level. This allows the radiator wire to be angled down

Working 160M From a Small Lot
A straight quarter-wave Best 1/4 - 125 ft at 1830 kHz with THHN Inverted L Good Go straight up as high as you can with a wire, then bend the remaining wire to run horizontal to resonate it Tee vertical A bit better than L - Like an inverted L, but the top is extended in opposite directions


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

Atu balanced feeder antenna system An ATU has the advantage of bringing the feeder-antenna system to resonance, act as a band pass filter both on receive and transmit and a low SWR
