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
