Re: O/T Wellbrook Loop antenna - any users?


Vielleicht... Doch Probieren geht über Studieren bzw. Mutmassen :-)

For reproducible and verifiable performance of Maynard's original Ferrite Sleeve Loop idea, check online sources, eg:-

The ultimate would be an FSL (search uldx !) with a bunch of ferrite rods.  On MW an FSL pulls in what others cannot hear, so should do equally well on 160m, probably less on on 80m unless the ferrite is
suitable for 3.5 MHz.

Either can be good to outflank rx QRM on 160m or 80m,
whilst using a regular dipole for tx, if required.

I was considering mounting a ferrite rod aerial on top of a pole away from the house and mains wiring, Ethernet cables etc I currently have a home-made 1m loop tuned by a varactor diode and 3 coils, LW, MW and 80m with matching transistor to 50 ohm coax and thinking a ferrite rod salvaged from an old battery portable might be better.

Has anyone tried using a remotely tuned ferrite rod?
