Hello to all Loop experimenters. especially the USA
Thanks to all that have sent me info about their experiments with the
bigger loop antennas, especially the observations from the USA, where
there seems to be plenty of real estate available with large pines,
cedars and high towers to put up big loops and are able to compare with
The majority of information has been sent directly to me but could be
useful to others if the information was directed to all, and those with
sufficient space around their QTH might learn something. The loops being
discussed are at least 40 ft x 40ft and up to 200 ft plus.
I have not been impressed with signals from loops around the UK and EU
but with large loops the position could be different. Some distances
covered with 1w to the antenna are remarkable and think of the potential
with kilowatts that some are using in the UK from the Decca Jeeps to one
of these loops.
