40 Meter Full Wave Loop

A 40M Full Wave Loop would be better than the Inverted Vee that I have

In the same space as my Diamond 80/40M Inverted Vee – I can have a much better antenna, and one that takes up the same space.

The antenna would favor N – S, which isn’t optimal, but I’m only in the hobby with one pinkie toe left in it – so it doesn’t matter. I’d rather have a 15 degree takeoff any direction compared to the 40 or 45 degree take off you get with an Inverted Vee.

No goals any more – except the occasional QRP CW QSO. DX with QRP is more exciting than with QRO – that’s for sure. I think I will put one of these up – it models well on 80M too – but not great above 40M.
