http://www.thepittsfieldinn.com/Bill/ gives some great detail on loop construction.
mine is 40ft up, 200ft along, 40ft down and returns about 6ft back. The
connections are in a small box - mine has a 1nF cap (shd be 2) in series
with the inner of the thin coax to one side of the loop, other side of the
loop is connected to the outer of the coax, and the resonating cap to bring
it to 137Khz across the loop (and defacto inner to outer of coax) is around
13.5nF
its cheap - easyish and I used a 2.5 pound weight to throw it up the silver
birch tree (Im in weight training!)

Please clarify for this [LF}  newbie  Are these vertical or horizontal
loops?  What dimensions?
