Topband: K9AY Loop not performing

Thank you to everyone who responded to my query.  The transmitting 
antenna was indeed coupling both noise and signals into my K9AY loops.  
I disconnected it at the feedpoint and the noise level on the RX antenna 
dropped 4 S-units!  Fooling around today in steady rain (which may 
affect the quality of ground, I'd expect).  I  was amazed, playing with 
the high end of the AM broadcast band, to be able to select one of two 
stations on the same frequency, just by switching the direction of the 
loop array.  I can hardly wait for European sunrise.
