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.

about three feet, and very quietly, meaning you can barely
hear the music going into the audio in. What is loud is a strong

Loading coil chart for 10-ft broadcast AM vertical antenna


I made a loading coil chart for a 10 foot broadcast AM vertical antenna. So far, i made a chart between 1360 and 1710 kHz. Frequency lower than 1360 kHz is useless because of the lower radiating efficiency.


Any suggestions and comments are welcome.
