Small antennas (all antennas at 100 KHz are small) are not a matter of wavelengths of wire in the air. They are a matter of making do with what you have. Efficiency is more a matter of coil loss (or equivalent) than of antenna size.

I'll freely grant that a 600' tower over a really good ground plane (like say the sea) is going to be way more efficient than anything I'd come up with. The same thing would apply to a matching network made of coils you can stand up inside compared to anything I'd make.
>> Totally off topic - In the lobby of Continental Electronics they used to have this typical transmitter sitting there. You sort of wondered "why". After looking at it you figured out the little ant down in the bottom was a person. Yes, the coils and "stuff" in Omega transmitters were *big*.
