One Heck of an Antenna

Last December I was able to install a 160 meter horizontal loop on the property. It sat unused until recently when I got my radio station back on the air. Currently I use an ICOM 1c-7100 and the AH-4 Antenna Tuner (purchased used at a ham fest) fed by ladder line. The tuner can match the antenna on all bands, and the ability to run good FT8 QSOs using 15 watts of output power is amazing.

The wait and effort is worth it, as my off-center fed dipole came down during a very bad wind storm. It will be easy to get back up, as soon as I can get the pull line down from the tree.
