Hello Tracey,

Thanks for the information. I have just gone to that sight and it looks
good.

Acouple of questions come to mind.

1)Does the K9AY loose it directional characteristics in the area of VLF?

Does it have so little "gain" at those freq. that the antenna becomes the
limiting factor in the noise floor as opposed to the natural noise floor of
the enviroment?

Do you need to constantlt adjust the termination resistor?

Thanks...  i will look for your response, but I am going back to the article
now

Hello Paul

I struggle to understand why people rave about the Flag
and Pennant which are both unidirectional and difficult
to switch direction, when the K9AY has been around for
some little time now.
With the K9AY, even with one loop you've got the ability
to switch between two directions at the flick of a switch,
with a two loop K9AY you've got all four points of the
compass covered.
I've used a K9AY on the NDB bands and down to VLF and it's
a great little performer, have a look at,
