Re: Antenna question

Nearly 20 years ago when we were living on our farm I had a loop made with 12 THHN stranded wire. Insulators were egg shaped porcelain. I suspended the loop on the corners and one other place because there was a good tree there. I used more of the THHN wire and window weights for tension. I ran 450 ohm to my home brew tuner and no balen was used. When it stormed I unhooked the feed wire shoved it out the wire tube I had installed in the wall and tied the ends of the feed line together.
My farm was on nearly the highest ground in Allen County so if there was lightning we got it.
I saw the loop more than once sparkling with static. It sure was a good antenna though. It came down in another wind storm and I never put it back up.
