Having moved to a bungalow, I have been refused planning permission for my tower. So, un deterred I have made up a home brew mag loop and I am very surprised at the results!
its just nailed to my garden fence, about 3 meters above ground, and I have been surprised how effective it is, even on SSB.
WSPR shows quite a decent front to side ratio, favouring the gamma match, when looking at the stats page and comparing reports every 1/2 hour while turning the loop.
Its just for 20m through to 15 meters, has a home brew capacitor, and uses the loop controller by our local club "THE-BRATS.NET."
who needs a tower!
Has anyone else had the restrictions to downgrade using something completely different?
