160m loft antenna diagram

This is a diagram showing the arrangement of my 160m loft-mounted antenna. The ground connection is made to a hot water tank (copper) next to the upstairs shack. It connects via copper pipes in the house to the external ground and works very well. The top capacity hat should be as large as possible but in my case is just a couple of horizontal wires around 1-2m longh in each case hung horizontally in the top of the loft space.
