KY6R Optimized 40M Loop: 28 dB F/B

Elevating the feed and making it 2′ shorter added almost 3 dB F/B

I’ve been able to squeeze a little more out of this loop – and it sure does look like a winner.

Almost 3 dB additional F/B – and an RDF of 7.5 – which is right on for a Flag

Very good pattern – and I will be able to switch North or South

I just received an NCC-1 and will be dedicating that to the 75A4. I will take the audio from the 75A4 and KX-3 and run the through a mixer – so I will have two sets of 40M RX antenna possibilities to play with. I can manually put the 75A4 in standby when I am transmitting with the KX-3.

The antenna size is nice and compact and I do have the perfect place in the back yard for it.
