"Short" 160-Meter Vertical. Post 1934.

Getting on the 160-Meter Amateur Radio Band from a small urban lot can be a difficult challenge.

You may find this curious top-loaded vertical from Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) a possible answer to your 160-Meter operating issues.  In Stan's design, a capacitance hat forms part of four guy wires supporting the vertical section of this antenna.  Try out this antenna and see if it works.
