160m inverted-L - 18m Spiderpole
It will still work very good, even if the horizontal wire has to be sloped diagonally to the ground as long as you have enough horizontal space to keep it at about a 45 degree angle or more from the pole

160 Meter Tunable Counterpoise
I have been asked many times to explain how to adapt a Tunable Buried Counterpoise System to a Horizontal Loop NVIS

160 Meter Vertical
This antenna is designed for stations having a difficult time putting a decent signal on 160M from small

160m vertical ready for the snow
For the 160m vertical. It consist of 24m of WIBE tower sections and an tapered aluminum tube which is in total 14m long making the vertical 37m high

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 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
