Default Re: My first frame aerial

Be that as it may the loop is giving me clear reception of stations that I want and rejecting all the noise, hash and adjacent channel interference that a 60 feet long wire gives. The loop can also be spun around 360 degrees in seconds.

Of course if I put filters in the long wire to supress the hash (can it be done?) and bandwidth controls on the receiver to try and stop the adjacent channel intereference and found some way to make the 60 foot long wire go in the direction of my choice I might achieve the same thing as the loop seems to be doing.

You can't do much with a long wire either, just put it up and that's that. The loop is much more fun to play with
