Loop Antenna + on 40m


Jon Hall
 

looking for advice / suggestions ...
I have the CCW loop antenna + with DC power unit. That is connected to sdrplay box.
I monitor from 160m - 2m and am well pleased with the results across this range.

I also have a efhw going down the garden.
Yes the wire is slightly better, but the loop works very well.
BUT [there's always a but]
On 40m the loop seems very deaf [all others bands are good]
The actual loop is the same length as the wire supplied, but I use a 1" stainlees steel strap.
Any ideas why only on 40m that I receive very little.

Regards, Jon.
