Loop Antennas for MW and/or SW Reception
Posted by Augusta XIV on November 14, 2021, 3:36 pm
Have you had any luck with loop antennas for either MW or SW (such as 49m) reception? Have you experienced any advantage over a random long wire? These antennas, such as MLA-30 or You Loop are sold by claiming to reduce noise by being able to null out interference but this often appears to be at the cost of reducing signal levels without greatly improving overall signal/noise ratio. I would be interested to hear if you have found any particular design, whether commercial or homebrew, to be worthwhile.
