Here are the results of the first transmit test of my new 160 meter quarter wave inverted L with elevated radials on September 9th. The test was conducted on 160 meters at 37 dbm power level over an approximate 12 hour period starting before local sunset and ending after sunrise. The inverted L is about 132 ft long. Vertical portion is about 70 ft. There are four 130 ft elevated radials at 9 ft above the very poorly conducting soil in the Green Mountains of Vermont. There is a 1:1 feedline isolator at the feedpoint.
