    Default New 160m Antenna at Arkala OH8X

    New 160m Antenna at Arkala OH8X

    It's well known that the bigger and higher the antenna, the better results you'll get.

    The new 3-element 160m antenna at OH8X must be about as big as you can get. Look out for a strong signal from them during 2009.

    The new antenna for the 160m Amateur Radio band was completed just in time for Christmas on 24th December after OH8SR and OH6RM had spent three weeks installing it.

    The Arcala Extremes station OH8X is located at Arkala 65.18N, 26.24E.

    The impressive antenna specs are:
    Tower height 100m
    80M and 160M booms 60m
    Five (5) 80M full-size elements

    Pictures can be seen at http://www.ly4a.com/?p=2499

    There is a video on YouTube of OH8NC giving a presentation about OH8X to the WPMC 2008 Telecom conference, which you can watch by clicking here

    Instead of trying to connect to the very slow LY4A web site, just go to the original OH8X Web Site: http://www.radioarcala.com and click on "Station" then "Tower and Antennas" "Tower7" and you will see more photos of this impressive antenna.

    You can also look at the others 6 towers and at the station story

    Strange, didn't ask me for name/pass... Here's the direct link, maybe it will work better for you.

    That is one awsome antenna. Wonder what they paid for all of that hardware. And how about the huge wind loading on that monster. Now, how to convince the YL we need one.....
