New 160m Antenna at Arkala OH8X

The new 3-element 160m antenna at OH8X must be about as big as you can get. Look out for a strong signal from them during 2009.

The new antenna for the 160m Amateur Radio band was completed just in time for Christmas on 24th December after OH8SR and OH6RM had spent three weeks installing it.

The Arcala Extremes station OH8X is located at Arkala
