Antenna Projects

Now that summer fun is over its time to get back to some serious antenna work.  I decided that along with an inverted L for top band, I need a decent receiving antenna(s) to dig weak signals out of the noise on the low bands.  The K9AY terminated loop looks like a good antenna to start with so I’m building that. Rather than blindly copying a known design I decided to use some new test gear I got last year to do some bench comparisons on cores I had on the bench.   Very instructive, to say the least.
