Need some ideas from your side...
I am trying to find a good solution for my 160/80m antenna.
I am thinking about some kind of Inv L with an 80m trap as a radiator for both bands.
But, what about the counterpoise...Unfortunately in my small city lot I can´t install radials and I can´t get parts for the FCP yet...what about a Ground screen ???...I have a galvanized roof...it is about 50 ft long and 16 ft wide...galvanized sheets are 3 by 8 ft long and all are bolted together. The roof is about 15 ft high.
Can I use this roof as a ground screen for the 160/80m antenna ???
P.S:1- I finish my 50 ft tower installation.
2- Thanks for all QSO´s on 160m before ARRL CW contest with me and with our contest station T48K.
