>Whats a J-Antenna as related to 160M or are we talking No-Code bands?
Actually, a few years back, we gave a pretty good account of ourselves
(considering our geographically challenged desert southwest location and no
beverages for RX) using a full sized 160M J-pole vertical in the CQWW160.
Check the scores for N7CL in the CW and N7DD in the phone. Actually, I
can't remember now whether we were using Larry's call in the phone section
or mine but it will be one or the other. We have since changed to a
different TX antenna that requires less support height. But the J-pole
worked quite well while we had a place to hang it from.
