The noise is strongest on 20 meters and above so I can use the SMA
input. I have a 3 foot in diameter hand-held loop that tunes 40 though
10 meters using a variable capacitor. It would be hard to stay
inconspicuous carrying the big loop though. Might be best done after
sundown ; )
I use this loop for QRP portable and often work DX with it on CW. I'm
hoping it will be enough to boost signals on the TH-F6A. The antenna
does have some deep nulls so that should help with DF.
