I think you're right.
One reason why in practice loops and t2fds sometimes end
up being lower noise, is that people think they can get
away with using their dipole without a (proper) balun.
A properly fed dipole will almost certainly be just as
low noise as a properly fed loop or t2fd.
All rights reversed.
