Re: Loop antennas

The best antenna  that I have used are antennas that are large loops. The signal strength is comparable to a dipole but the noise floor is lowered 10db approximately. Our previous loop was 1300' and seemed to have the best signal both on transmit and receive.

Our current loop is 2600' It performs excellent on 160 and 80m but rolls off above that. Most signals sound like they are vhf FM.
