160 m Dipole Length Calculator

This tool calculates the physical dimensions of a 160 meter dipole antenna.

At 160 meters, the dipole length (L) is 249.8 feet. The length of each element of the dipole (l) is half of that at 124.9 feet.

Formula

The total length (L) of the dipole antenna is calculated as:

L = 468 / f

where f is the frequency in MHz.

f is calculated from the wavelength. For 160m the frequency is 1.87 MHz.

The length of each arm of the dipole

l = L/2
