Upgraded Mag loop with large split stator capacitor. Still using two, joined 1.5m RG213 lengths for loop with RG-174 loop feed.

Today a very quickly erected low 80m dipole to provide a reference to the two turn Mag loop.

I didn't expect much but the EH Antenna in the loft which is propped up at a 45 ยบ Angle in a due east direction did make some European Contacts but appeared to display directivity. Going to play with this some more !

Well, my 80m Carolina Windom seems to work well with 0.5w so thought I'd use that for a bit of CW practice. For WSPR today just using 0.5w into a directly attached Miracle antenna. Shack noise already rather apparent.
