I have had a sudden interest in small manetic transmitting loops lately.
Have seen manty designs for 160 meters and above but not too much on LF.
Anyone running one of these at 136Khz?   How is the feeding done?\\
Myself and GW4ALG have both successfully used loops on 136 - small in the 
context of
the size of my garden, but much bigger than the normal receive loop.  Have a 
look at
my site (address below) and Steve's which is linked from mine.  Despite being
despised by some, they are an excellent way of getting on the band from 

I do note some qsb on some signals (eg GW4ALG) at times - whether that would be
apparant on a Marconi I do not know, when I get my vertical up I may be able to 
comparisons.  However my 100ft circumference loop is certainly an excellent 
antenna (apart from in its null) regardless of whether there is occasional qsb.
