40 wire loop
- Hello all,
I am new to Loop antennas on HF, having always previously used trapped
vertical antennas until recently.
I would like to put a full size 40m wire loop in my loft fed with
300ohm slotted feeder, going to a 4:1 balun and fed with 50 ohm coaxial
I have read somewhere that the 40m loop will need to be cut to a lesser
length than exactly 40m, can any of you guys tell me the exact length
please? Do I need to take into account the length of the 300ohm slotted
feeder or does that not affect the loop?
Also will this 40m wire loop resonate as a 1/2 wave loop on 80m?
