Default Re: Antenna recommendation for 40 and 80M bands

This strategy of a mag-loop for receive, and the best conventional aerial you can for Tx, does look like it could be one approach to try cope with the noise problem.

I'm just waiting to have some trees cut down, and I'll be pursuing this again. I only have the time to get involved with this in the winter months; the last two winters formed part of a very shallow learning curve .

Referring back to the link on the small vertical dipole in post 31, I've searched Google and it does not seem like that antenna has been taken up to any great extent, or that short, non-resonant vertical dipoles are much used, but perhaps we are missing out on something good?

Data beats opinions most times... that's my opinion, though I have no data on that.
