How true. I put up a 2 element delta loop beaming east for the 10 meter
contest. I also put up a bi-square oreiented NW-SE for the JA's.
Sometimes on the east coast stations, the delta loop was better, and
sometimes the bi-square was better. I could work stations on the loop
for a while, and when things slowed down, switch to the other antenna and
things would pick up again. Strange!!!! 73 and Merry Christmas
