Wire loop antenna on the ground for HF receiving-How good?


If you are plagued by local noise (RFI) or HOA complaints, you may want to try "the antenna you put down, not put up" built by Australian radio Amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE).

Peter's wire loop on the ground may be nearly invisible to your neighbors while it reduces some of the bad noise in your area.

Although the antenna is primarily for HF reception, it could, in an emergency, be be used a NVIS (near vertical incident skywave) antenna.

Here are some comments from Peter (VK3YE):

A wire loop on the ground as a receiving antenna? How well does it work? Here I give it a test. FRONT socket connected to wire loop, REAR socket connected to G5RV.
