[Antennaware] Receiving Loop

Hi folks,

I am new to the reflector and have a burning need to learn about small (less 
than .1wl), shielded (coax) magnetic loops. Specifically, I would like a 
source of design formulae (are ON4UN's accurate and complete on this subject?), 
would like to know how distributed capacitance of the coax affects size and 
matching, would like to know how diameter of the loop and of the coax change 
characteristics of the loop, and why most designs use RG-59 coax.

Is there a definitive read on this subject?

Thanks to all,
John, N9RF
