> Subject: [Antennaware] 2-element delta loop array close to ground
>>I am modeling a 20M 2-element delta loop array with the apex up, 12-foot
>> spacing and the bottom about 35 feet above ground, fed at a lower corner,
>> using Multi-NEC and NEC2. In driven/reflector configuration, it looks

>> driven/director configuration, there isn't much directivity at all,
