Hi Chris and everyone.
hope you are all well?
my initial evaluation of this loop gave me poor results..ie very little signal output..but I am not one to give up.I expect was hoping for a miracle antenna!! ( was only 1m dia single loop.)
After finding the original papers on this it suggests ( but gives no values.) of using inductance and not resistance in the loop ( directly above feed point.)
I ask please for more info..as why 110r used? Does this value need to be altered if loop has higher or lower inductance/ size etc..( i wish to try to use my quad 1m square loop.( total area 4m)
why a resistor and not an inductor?( as per original paper)
I ask as still on a quest to make the best rx loop array I can here.. ie possibly phasing cardioid loops ( if i can get them to work to my satisfaction..)
My delay line 2 quad loop array is working well, i can get a good f/b ratio, but still struggle to hear USA on 160m ssb.. looking for better!! ( though it trounces the single quad loop!)
please excuse my questions..all my rf knowledge is home learnt.. (did mechanical and electrical at uni..) so always on a learning curve re rf..( though been 40 yrs now since passed rae! Getting old...)
regards..stay well Simon g0zen
