Icom 7300, attic dipole - transmit, amplified loop - receive

Transmitting = 66 foot end fed from 25 ft above ground to a deck 8ft above ground back to the building and back to the deck in a zig-zag pattern to avoid overlapping turns and parallel wires.

Receiving = a 3ft diameter amplified loop with a send/receive switch box.

Rig = Yaesu FT-450D

Note: If I use the end-fed for receiving, my noise is S9. On the amplified receive only antenna the noise is S7.
