The Antenna Compendium describes some experiments
with the "Half-Loop" antenna which is a half of a full loop
antenna fed against a ground screen.
It would be fed at the ground, then go up to a support, and
finally back down to the ground again, sorta like an inverted
V dipole, but fed at one end against ground rather than at
I have had good luck with full-wave loops in the past, but
height and size have prevented trying such on 80m or 160m.
I am curious if anyone has experience with this type of antenna?
