Hi Jake,

It is not the best antenna for DX  ,, but a good antenna for Field Day.
The rather high angle pattern should net you many QSO's.
With the match box an acceptable  VSWR for the transceiver should be possible.
Good luck & have fun.

How do Top Banders, 

I've got a "theory" question for the collective group. 

Think Field Day. Full wave loop on 75/80 meters. Coax fed with a 2:1 balun. (I 
know, use ladder line and a Match Box). Is it usable if you use ladder line 
down to near ground level into the balun, and coax from there? OR does/should 
the balun be up in the air at the loop itself?? We're thinking put the balun 
down near ground so the weight isn't up in the air.. Remember, field day and 
temp install. 

What say you all??
