I guess it depends on what you want to do on 160.
Rag chew with the locals -- put up an NVIS low dipole
Work the rare DX -- put up a 4 square of 1/4 wave verticals with 32 to 120
radials under each one and then buy a 200 ft. tower and put up a Waller Flag
for receive. (or if you have 100 acres put up 8 pairs of 1000 foot
beverages in 8 directions)
Realistically, 116 Ft of Rohn 25 with 32 radials under it for transmit and
a Waller Flag for receive on top of that.
73 and see you on TB
