The 160 meter dipole was built in the driveway. There was just enough space.

Construction required 2 days. The antenna was very difficult to move to the launch position.

This photo shows the marine cord attached at the T-bar (36 ft) loading.

Philystran is used to guy the element at the point where the tower lattice ends.

The center of the element uses a vertical strut to attach the 12 guy cables.

The dipole uses 1" fiber rod for insulation between each half of the dipole.
