I've just spent a very educational hour with Google Earth looking at my
Beverage options for 160M. On a 45/225 azimuth I can only get about 215
feet. Is that even worth doing with a conventional Beverage? What about
a BOG? Because of my lot layout I will need to use a reversible 2-wire
Beverage with the NE end right outside my shack. Don't know if the
KD9SV reversing transformers will work for a BOG.
My other reasonable receiving option is a K9AY loop or similar.
Transmitting antenna will be an inverted L, with vertical section
probably no more than 60 feet. I'd like to finish my 160M DXCC this
winter if possible
