The 160 meter helical wound antenna you describe, I’m told, is not acceptable under the 3 meter rule as the “coil” itself is the radiator and exceeds the 3 meter lenght allowed even though the “coil” is 3 meter or less in lenght. I looked into trying it and was told it’s not acceptable…[/quote]
Could you please post more detail about this? What are your sources, and what are the engineering justifications supporting this statement?
Not to deny or support what you’ve stated in your post, but probably many of us would like to know the basis for this evaluation.
