  I am planning on upgrading my 160m antenna (currently an inverted vee at 
120'). I'm considering a quarter wave sloping vertical (or inverted L) with 4 
elevated radials or a half wave sloper with the top at 120'. The half wave 
seems more attractive because it elimiates the need for radials. I'd like to do 
a K3LR style "foldback to the tower" sloper but I'm not sure that 120' height 
is sufficient. 
 I'd appreciate any suggestions or comments on which would work better for my 
 Thanks / 73,
