I'm on a 1/3 acre suburban lot and have a full size plus inverted L transmit antenna and also an 8 foot diameter receive loop. I have websites published on these antenna designs at

http://www.kn4lf.com/kn4lf52.htm and http://www.kn4lf.com/kn4lf40.htm

An 80 meter dipole shorted into a current fed tee vertical just won't cut it on 160 meters. You also need to run some power too like 400 watts.
