Re: Loop antenna amplifier with 30cm loop

It's good to see the USA getting it's feet wet at last, though 40 years down the line according to that document. I agree we should use mm instead of cm but, it's not a big deal. I don't see anything wrong with specifying the loop size in metres, eg 1m - you'll have to explain that one to me, but I'm not about to get into an argument about it !! Even though we've been metric for a long time, we still see and hear folk using the imperial system and most of us to the sums in our heads, whichever way it goes.

How do Chris
I have been following your fine work and most-helpful correspondence for some time and have noticed your adherence (most of the time except, for length measurements) to using correct SI metric nomenclature. It is a rare trait even among those who call themselves 'professionals', such folk who should be setting an example to the hoi polloi. Sadly, ham newsletter editors pay scant heed to conformity with the international standards, thus bad habits, and the ambiguity resulting therefrom, simply continue getting worse.
The attachment provides full SI metric nomenclature specifications, despite coming out of America!
The best illustration of my allegation comes from your own hand, with my annotations in brackets to show what is meant:
