[Antennaware] Shielded loop receive antennas.

In the ARRL antenna handbook (and repeated elsewhere) is a design for 
a 160m shielded rx loop antenna with 5ft square sides.

Can anyone advise me how the strength of the recovered signal would 
change if the loop was made bigger.  By using low-capacity coax I 
think I could still resonate a loop that has 7ft square sides.  This 
would very nearly double the  **AREA** of the loop, I would like to 
understand how this would affect the received signal.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
