Hi all,

I was browsing Mr Cebik's site with an interest in constructing a 
quad-loop 15M monoband antenna suspended in a tree, using #16 AWG 
insulated wire.

As he points out, a rectangular shape is preferred, to slightly increase 
gain and lower the feedpoint impedance to close to 50ohm.

I'm new to antenna modeling and have tried a few things in some antenna 
modeling programs and the SWR and other variables are less than optimal.

Was hoping i could get some guidance from the group with regard to 
coming up with an optimal design for this configuration?

I'd prefer to directly feed with a (short) run of RG58C/U and a choke.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance.
