160m band - loaded inverted L

This is my 160 meters antenna, a short loaded inverted L. The linear lenght is 20 meters, with the loading coil at 5 meters from the feedpoint.  During 2012 CQWW 160 CW, with 400W I worked 42 countries and 215 qso. Not too bad!

Here is some pictures about my antenna.

Pvc pipe, 40mm outer diameter, 1.5mm copper wire, 78 turns.

 

Now, some pictures about installation.
