This post was in anticipation of getting the band stateside..
I agree.. for receive I would use multiturn loops or a Flag antenna.
So I was wonder how well something like this would work for Xmit

<< I have a location on my property where I could run a flat top antenna
of perhaps 70 to 80 feet high with a top hat made of parallel wires at
200 feet long.
I have a tower on my property that is 130' high and could attache to that
with the proper insulator if I did not mind the tophat sloping from 130'
around 80 feet.
Trees would be about 75 feet away in any direction ...
Your thought? >>
Seeing that we presently have no legal provision stateside for
into antennas of those dimensions, I have to assume you are speaking of
receiving. Ground system losses are less of a factor for receiving,
depending on the type of input your receiver has or what sort of antenna
tuner you are using with it. Proximity to trees is not ideal even for
receiving at LF, but 75 feet or so should be acceptable. Receiving loops
would be still better, though.
