Using a CB Antenna for top 4 feet of a 3 meter long AM antenna
On a 3-meter long Mid loaded monopole antenna - there is a 4.4' element above coil. What about replacing that 4.4' element with a 4' CB antenna. Physical length sill under a meter by electrically it is like getting 4.5 more feet, allowing for a smaller loading coil.
