T Vertical for 160m

Pictures

This is the first T vertical I built, it had 22m high vertical section and around 12m each horizontal section...

The high winds in December 2009 broke the antenna and I still cannot put it as high as it was, now it has 19m high and 15m horizontal sections.

The number of radials has been rising, there are over 50 radials from 1/8 wavelength to 1/4 wavelength.

Due to the very high winds dad and I decided to rebuild the T vertical which was hanging from a tree.

Bellow is the schematic of the antenna:
