Subject: LF: Loops and steep skywaves
Apparently I am seeing the
superposition of the (attenuated) groundwave plus a variing-delay skywave,
whose polarisation has either been modified by [...] or by a horizontal
current-component in the transmitting antenna.
If the skywave is of useful strength does this mean that it is worth trying
a horizontal radiator, which could be as much as a half wave in length if
you have the real estate available? There is a disused airfield near here.
Now if I spoke nicely to the owner...
