After using a round loopantenna for long period I was not happy with the performance and that is the reason for this experiment
I build a Alford Loop antenna and found very much improved performance compared to the round loop
In the Alford loop the loop is symmetrical fed on two opposite
corners. Though relative large compared to the wavelength the Alford loop
behaves like a very small loop.
The antenna is build on PVC pipe
For active amplifier I am using the LZ1AQ active amplifier.
From the antenna I have two wires to the input of the amplifier. The two connections on the antenna are 7 cm apart.
This antenna gives me best performance I have had from an active antenna.
Here some feedback I received from someone about the performance of my antenna
your KIWI-receiver has good results. Can you tell me something about the
used amplifier for your Alford-Loop ?
I'm testing also some antennas (active) for my KIWI...
Quite pleased with this feedback.
