Have an Alpha-Delta DX-A for 160/80/40 which is a dual sloper and mounted to a 40 ft tower. You need a tower because the tower is part of the antenna.. the only
way you could get around the tower is by using a 35-40 metal mast or using possible a down wire from a tree of same height.
Generally, on 160m the longer the better. Short wires/verticals and generally poor performers. Verticals are usually noisy on 160m and some use beverage antennas
for receiver only, but they need a bit of space for 160.
There is lots of info on the net if you do a search.
I'm looking for a simple, and reasonable antenna for 80/160m.
What are your thoughts? I know some of you have some pretty elaborate setups. I'm looking for something easy.
