A wellbrook loop is a very SMALL loop about 1M diameter.
Plenty of elevated wire as high as possible is the answer on LF/MF

It was me,2E0ILY. Thanks for the info. The Wellbrook loop is a large
aperture wire loop, but as G0LUJ is a coastal location I think maybe
that flatters the signals. I guess I should try a long resonated wire first

Someone recently mentioned the Wellbrook loop.
I borrowed a Wellbrook loop for antenna comparisons a while back.
Weak signals on MF that i could copy with my 1/4 wave inv L on MF
and also my 160m inv L also used to RX on MF. I could not even hear these
weak signals on the Loop.
I could copy stronger signals on the Loop but these were 2 to 3 S
units down on the above wire antennas.
A vertical loop is not ideal for all round listening except it is
rotatable, but could be useful to null out noise at a noisy QTH
A resonated length of wire as long as possible would be a better choice
for all round listening
