160m Projects - Antennas

Clcik to enlarge10' x 20' Active Loop by VE7SL
The new 'loop' is not really loop-shaped but is rectangular (10' x 20') and more like a Flag antenna shape. I considered a Flag but really don't need any back-end nulling capability since I'm mainly interested in listening to the east and to the north.

Several years ago a friend of mine (W7AE)(sk) and myself became interested in low band dxing. Lacking room for a beverage receiving antenna, we constructed several loop receiving antennas.

It's been a few months since Bonnie (KB5YSE) and I moved to our new home in Natchitoches, Louisiana. We relocated here about a year after hurricane Katrina substantially rearranged our lives. We managed to retire and plan to spend a lot of tine doing all the things we have always wanted to do, but never quire seemed to find the time to do.

This is a very small vertical 160m antenna that fits in the loft of even my small house. It was built as a way of getting a signal out on 160m for local AM contacts, but the local noise level was far too high to allow it to be used at night for this purpose. However, on WSPR it did a pretty good job with WSPR spots from a very long way across Europe being received when running 2.5W out.

This aerial is one I have used for top band (160 metres) - it was suggested to me by Alan G4ERZ, also of Hull.

Click to enlargeA Simple Loop Aerial for 160/80 by G3YXM
The idea of this 160/80mtr aerial is that the tuning and matching components are kept out of the weather and within reach of the operator. If this sort of arrangement would fit your situation it's worth a try. The loop is made of thick cable, satellite coax is good because there's plenty of copper in the braid.

The Hart EH Antenna consists of two (2) elements having a natural capacity between them.

As for all long-wire antennas also these that I am going to describe arevery simple but incredibly efficient. I actually discovered this type of antenna owing to some problems with available space around my house.

Click to enlargeReceiving Loop Aerials for 1.8 MHz by VK5BR
Localised noise in the receiver can be reduced by using a small loop aerial. Shielded coax loops, unshielded loops and ferrite rod loops for 1.8 Mhz have been compared here.

Described here is a lightweight vertical, based around a squid pole, that can be erected in under 20 minutes.

Click to enlargeShortened 160 meter vertical by PI4CC
Mobile operators and those who reside on property of city-lot size should find the author's treatment of physically shortened 160-meter vertical antennas of considerable interest.

Click to enlargeThe 40/80/160 Meter Coil-loaded Inverted V Dipole Antenna by KGZZ
This coil-loaded inverted V dipole antenna is a resonate antenna that does not require the use of an antenna tuner. It will work all of the 40 meter band plus a portion of the 80 and 160 meter bands.

Click to enlargeTop Fed 1/4 wave length Linear Loaded Vertical by KE4UYP
This is a vertically and horizontally polarized antenna the Linear loaded 1/4 wave length vertical radiator introduces very little loss.
