Topband: Best 160 antenna

Hi Gary,
For many years I used an inverted L between two tall pine trees and one elevated radial that was L shaped to fit on the 90' x 60' lot I had in Spring, TX. The radial was about 15' up and it was fed through a choke balun. Worked about 160 countries with 600 watts output. I also had an AY loop with one leg of the loop about 6' from the radial. I had to detune the antenna on receive and had BIG resistors in the loop to keep them from smoking during transmit.
