Re: [loopantennas] Re: Loop feed point pics
- Mike, since you are looking for a receiving antenna your main objective should be an antenna configuration providing largest possible "capture area". It is not that important to provide feed with "matching impedance" to your receiver. However, a "real" Earth ground is very helpful.

>Even though it's far off-topic, I enjoyed hearing from others who have
an avid interest on Arctic exploration. I have many other books yet to
read, and would like to find a copy of one written by Vilhjalmur Stefansson,
who was probably the single most incompetent Arctic explorer of record. His
disregard for others resulted in the loss of life of the members of the
Karluk in 1913-1914.
Another interesting book is "My Polar Flights" by Umberto Nobile, in
which he describes the crash and subsequent rescue of the survivors of the
airship (dirigible) Italia, which was slammed against the ice cap by a
severe storm. The incident was made into a movie named "The Red Tent",
which has a very vivid depiction of the crash.
