Yagi, shamgi.  I use my 80-40 trap dipole!  :-D  I did have a KB6KQ
loop (and one for 2m as well - both for sale, BTW) but I found the
wire was at least equivalent.  Most of my 130 confirmed grids on 6 are
with wire.  OTOH, I have very little DX (looks like 8 worked, 5
confirmed including K/VE) ...

I DO have an MFJ Yagi for 6m, it's just not helping my signal in the
garage, disassembled. :-)

Also, let me say, there is NEVER a bad time to put money into
antennas, regardless of band.
