I am curious about your statement regarding additional loss as a result of
using a low Q trap. You stated that the loss at the non-trapped frequency,
in this case 160 meters would be insignificant regardless of the trap type
used. So I am assuming that the loss that you are referring to is the loss
in effective gain at the trapped frequency compared to a 1/4wl vertical
operating against the same ground at the trapped frequency. Is this correct?
