I have to tell my 432 loop story. Once upon a time, I had a M2 70 cm loop,
mounted off the side of my tower, @75'. It had a clear shot at the FLWSS
beacon, in Orlando, thirty something miles away. Signal was always about S-1.
One afternoon I had my 5760 gear, set up in the back yard. The 5 Gig
station has a three element, 432 yagi for liasion. It is about eight feet off
the ground. Signal from the beacon was also S-1.
There has to be some subtle hidden message about loops vs yagis, here.
