Re: Tuned loop antenna

I have had my PL-360 on my 2 and 4 foot air cores and they work well, but are not nearly as narrow a pattern as ferrite loops. - FARMERIK

Hi,

I've looked at some of the amazing ferrite rod antennas for ultralights.

Has anybody tried a tuned loop antenna in place of the ferrite rod, letting the si4734 do the tuning rather than a capacitor on the loop? I have a large hexagonal loop and I'm considering mounting the PL-380 on the loop frame itself, disconnecting the internal ferrite.
