Well, a rainy day brought me back to thoughts of antennas for 160m. Version one was a folded vertical, in an inv-L configuration, made simply of two sides of 300-ohm twin joined together. Worked fine. Version two was - wait for the criticism, the naysayers, the abusers - an earth loop ('ground spike') antenna. Well, bring on the abuse, because I've certainly never seen such strong signals at low frequency before, and certainly haven't got a 35W signal across 10,000km to JA at 160m before. https://mw1cfnradio.blogspot.com/2019/11/earth-loop-antenna-experiments.html Then again, save the abuse, and have a go at it yourself. After all, it's just a balun, two copper tubes in the ground, and a coax feed. *Terms and conditions apply: ground characteristics may affect any given ground antenna's performance. If you want to deny the antenna's performance, you always have the option not to respond, read something else, and/or use an alternative antenna.
