Just put up a 160m dipole, apex is 24m high and center cond wire is at 24m and shield wire at 15m high. Its broadside north / south. I'm now feeding it with rg-8x as the ladder line worked well on other bands, I found the balun and tuner would get too hot on 160m (my favorite band) even with short transmissions. The previous dipole was knocked down during typhoon yolanda.
