Re: Antenna amplifier for Beverage and large cardioid loop antennas

Hi Jim,

You will be surprised by the Loop on the Ground, I was.

Most radio amateurs think Beverage antennas are only for LF work on 160 and 80m. This is because Beverage's original QST article in 1922 only covers those bands.

It will work well up to 30 MHz. The optimum length is 2 wavelengths but lengths down to 1/4 wavelengths give good results as shown on the web page with a 40m long Beverage on 80m.

A 20m long Beverage running at 330 degrees will give excellent results to North America on 20m and above.

Regards,

Chris
