Now have DX on 160m  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I installed the TZ-SL8-16 sloper on my 50' tower for the Oceania DX contest in 2015 to work 80m.
Performed excellently.
Installed about 8 radials from 40' to 120' or so, just lying on the ground.
US stations that were not audible on my 80m EDZ were S8-9 on the sloper. My 80m noise was about S7.
Just this week i used it to work K5P on both 160m and 80m, switching to the 80m EDZ, K5P was just audible in the noise at about 459, switched to the sloper, 559 and the noise dropped about 2 S points.
It is a full 1/4 wave sloper on 80m with an rf choke and capacity wire for 160m.
