Re: Antennas for 160m

 

My beverage is short at only 150 ft and it works great on 160 and 80.  I've even used it on 40 and 30 mtrs.  I used something like a 470 ohm terminating resistor but I got tired of changing out the burnt out terminating resistor caused by static discharge so I went to the 5 watt metal oxide ones and the present one has been in use for a year.  Guaranteed to bring out weak 160 mtr signals out of the noise.  I can only imagine how a 3 or 4 hundred ft. long beverage would work.  The 1000MP makes it very easy.

Antennas for 160m

Jerry N9AVY
 

The setup that many use is a vertical on 160m with a beverage antenna for receive.

The beverage antenna doesn't have to be very high... just run it along a fence or even lower. A friend's lot borders on on a forest preserve area and in Winter he'd run his beverage antenna out there, but had to take it down when weather turned nice and people went tramping about.

With a beverage, the longer the better.  One thing is that the far end needs to be terminated with a 600 Ohm resistor... K9DX had several Beverage antenna, but he was out in farmland and there was a bit of lightning activity at times which blew some resistors; so he made the resistors plugable. 

There is also the option of using a magnetic loop. I built one a few years ago and it's still in garage.  It's a 4 ft. box loop , but never got any further because I didn't have a transmit antenna.  Magnetic loops worked quite well for me back in my SWL days when I'd DX on the AM broadcast band. Had a 2 ft. loop which enabled me to null out local 50KW WGN and hear the Cuban station underneath it. Was about 6 miles from WGN transmitter site.

A mag loop can be homebrewed way cheaper than commercial models sold on net. Using wood dowels and hookup wire, probably less than $50 as opposed to commercial model which go for around $500. The antenna can be placed anywhere you have room for it and can be rotated for best reception (armstrong method).

Many radios have the capability of using a receive only antenna... the FT-1000MP has a front panel AB/RX switch for that reason.Am sure others do as well.

Antennas for 160m depend on what you have room for installing. Length of a 1/2 wave dipole is like 260 ft. ... the closer you get to that length the better.  There are many articles on the net for 160m antennas.

Please add me in too John.  I had a very, very poor temp setup that I can no longer setup and take down.  Sure would like to get something up for 160 that WORKS and I could leave up!  Thanks!

Lee,
I think you're right that it will depend on multipliers.  I got lucky the last night when Venezuela, Panama, Puerto Rico and of all things England popped up.  I had such a poor showing in the 160 mtr sprint so I built an 80 mtr EFHW and used that as a Marconi on 160.  I also built a shortened end fed 40, 80 and 160 mtr antenna that is only about 85 ft long.  If you want to try 160 I can send you the article on the shortened end fed.  You do have an advantage being in the middle of the country and get contacts to the east and west however if I do make contacts to the east, they're multipliers.

Lee,

I live in an HOA with fairly tight rules. but I have two neighbors who do not complain to the HOA if I erect a temporary Inverted-L running running 22 or 24 gauge hookup wires thru their palm trees. It is supported by a 35 ft telescoping fiberglass mast and I run only two radials (80m and 160m) from the base thru the landscaping on either side of my house.

Miraculously, it actually makes contacts. Can't help but wonder how much better it would be if it were a real antenna system.

You'd kill him if you got those 160M multipliers.

Stay Safe and Good luck!

73,
Stan

I can't do 160 meters...no antenna. I don't use an amp. 100 watts is all I need. Much more important is a good antenna in my opinion. I think the winner will be the one who gets the most multipliers.

John made a hellava push on this one.

It will be tilly-bar-the-door on the Doubleheader.

Will you be able to get on 160M in this critical test? Could it make the difference?

John was running high power. If you are up against him primarily, maybe time to drag out the Amp?

May the best man win!!

73, see you on the air.

Can't wait to see the Leader Board for the RC3 Cup. I wouldn't be surprised to see John pass me. Good for him!!! The last contest of the year will determine the winner I'm sure...but I can assure you I'm going to give it my best shot. And I'm sure John is to. This will be a lot of fun.

This year there were 45 logs submitted – up a bunch from last year’s 25 logs. There were 10 High Power, 19 Medium Power, 15 Low Power and one QRP logs submitted. There were 935 logged QSO’s on 40M, 304 on 80M and only 16 on 160M.


Top Dawg and 1st in High Power was John, KC3FL of Inverness, FL, with a record breaking 74 QSOs and 4290 points. Another stellar showing from John who seemed to be all over the bands. How will he do in the RC3 Championship race against Lee, N5SLY?


High Power - Second Place was new member #2797, Darin, KO4EJD of Crestview, FL, with 2047 points. Third place was Bob, KF3AA of Huntingtown, MD, with 1968 points.


Medium Power - First place was Stan, W9SMR of Sarasota, FL, with 2548 points. Stan seems to be enjoying the contests lately using his jury-rigged Inv-L run through the neighbor’s palm trees.


Medium Power – Second Place was grabbed by Lee, N5SLY, of Sherman, TX with 2250 points and Third Place went to Dave, KB3RAN, of Lusby, MD, with 920 points.


Low Power – First Place was non-member and new ham Jeff, AC1JR of Dustable, MA with 2408 points. Jeff has since joined us as member #2807. Welcome aboard, Jeff!


Low Power - Second Place went to Steve, W3HF, Collegeville, PA, with 2054 points. Third Place went to Dave, WA3LXD of Ft McCoy, FL with 972 points.


QRP Power – First Place went to Steve, VA3FLF of Fort Erie, ON with 25 QSOs and 442 points. That’s a great achievement on these low bands these days.

Stan,

Can't wait to see the Leader Board for the RC3 Cup.  I wouldn't be surprised to see John pass me.  Good for him!!!  The last contest of the year will determine the winner I'm sure...but I can assure you I'm going to give it my best shot.  And I'm sure John is to.  This will be a lot of fun.  Looking forward to seeing everyone on the air during the contest.

This year there were 45 logs submitted – up a bunch from last year’s 25 logs. There were 10 High Power, 19 Medium Power, 15 Low Power and one QRP logs submitted. There were 935 logged QSO’s on 40M, 304 on 80M and only 16 on 160M.

Top Dawg and 1st in High Power was John, KC3FL of Inverness, FL, with a record breaking 74 QSOs and 4290 points. Another stellar showing from John who seemed to be all over the bands. How will he do in the RC3 Championship race against Lee, N5SLY?

High Power - Second Place was new member #2797, Darin, KO4EJD of Crestview, FL, with 2047 points. Third place was Bob, KF3AA of Huntingtown, MD, with 1968 points.

Medium Power - First place was Stan, W9SMR of Sarasota, FL, with 2548 points. Stan seems to be enjoying the contests lately using his jury-rigged Inv-L run through the neighbor’s palm trees.

Medium Power – Second Place was grabbed by Lee, N5SLY, of Sherman, TX with 2250 points and Third Place went to Dave, KB3RAN, of Lusby, MD, with 920 points.

Low Power – First Place was non-member and new ham Jeff, AC1JR of Dustable, MA with 2408 points. Jeff has since joined us as member #2807. Welcome aboard, Jeff!

Low Power - Second Place went to Steve, W3HF, Collegeville, PA, with 2054 points. Third Place went to Dave, WA3LXD of Ft McCoy, FL with 972 points.

QRP Power First Place went to Steve, VA3FLF of Fort Erie, ON with 25 QSOs and 442 points. That’s a great achievement on these low bands these days.

I have been busy for the last week doing some house reno, and today is a first day to take it easy. My Cobweb took a beating from our last wind storm and I am still waiting on my wire kit from MFJ so I can restring it.
I am on a 20/40 End Fed and it does a pretty good job on 15.

I am on 15 M,  21.070 for a little while,. 1805Z

I managed to work W7PFB, W7JHR, and W0JSL on 15.  Worked KG5OIB on 17, but  could not find him on other bands.  I tried WSPR on 10 mtrs and the stations receiving me were all on the West coast, but did not see anyone on 10.  Call several times on 12 with no takers.  

All and all it was nice to see some psk31 activity on the other bands.
