Short-160-Special known as Carolina beam 160 operates on bands 160m - 10m with a radiator length of 30.4 or 25.6m (100 or 84ft) & Verticals of 4.8+6.7+4.8 or 9.7m (16+22+16 or 32ft).  Polarization: Vertical and Horizontal. Feedline: 50 Ohm coax - Matching: DMU + Transmatch - Transmatch: Required - Power: 1.5kW (80-10m) CW/SSB, 500W (160m) CW/SSB - Install: >12m (40ft) above ground - Radials: Not required.

 It's an exceptional performer on 80-10m. On 160m, the Carolina Beam is a small antenna, far less than the usual 80m (265ft) required for 160m operation, but even so compared to other shortened antennas it should be able to hold its own. A wide range manual transmatch is a must with this antenna.
