Hello all, I have a relatively small yard sloping down hill and am looking for suggestions on the best way to transmit and receive effectively on 160 meters. I have seen many antenna types and just want to be certain on getting the most effective antenna for money and effort spent. Large long wire type antennas and out as of the space limitations. any help or ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks John KB3GXP

An inverted-L is usually the best compromise for a small space on 160M.
