[TowerTalk] EWE or K9AY Loop?

I can speak subjectively about the comparison between a Pennant and a Ewe as
I use both at my station.  Both antennas were built per the literature in
the public domain and are far enough to preclude interaction and are pointed
at 45 degrees.

The Pennant consistently provides a better signal to noise ratio than the
Ewe.  I personally would not consider another Ewe but will add another
Pennant this summer.  Can't really comment on the loop however because I
don't use one.

Subject: [TowerTalk] EWE or K9AY Loop?

My experience this weekend told me that I need to move my South facing 
receive antenna to the other side of my property line (there's about a 
15-20 ft wide space between my house and the neighbors on that side).

It just so happens there are two trees 45 feet apart, running N-S along 
my property line.  The total length of the lot is 140 ft.

So the question is, what do I put there, a EWE or K9AY loop... or does 
it matter?

Thanks in advance,
