Re: CLE145 Hot-Rodded Ultralight

Very clear new images, very envy-engendering! If only I knew
the location, I would jump the fence and nick the exhibits :-))

When you have time, could you use your empirical data
to estimate the size of poor-mans-loop (triangular, circular
and square, that would equate in performance terms to a
FSL and to a loopstick respectively?

The triangular loop is of special interest because it is easier to
construct rigidly.

(Comparison with a longwire like Jerry┬┤s would likewise be
interesting, but that is more difficult - when does a short or telescopic
antennna "grow" into a longwire and into a beverage etc!)

On a more theoretical level, has there been any further investigation
into the hypothesis of a FSL modelling a reduced-size conventional loop,
but, due to the ring of ferrite rods inside, without reduced performance?

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for your interest in the Ultralight CLE145 longwave loggings,
and the 7.5" LW loopstick PL-380 / FSL combination. I've uploaded a
photo of this radio and antenna team in action today during the Ndblist
"Barn Door" CLE event. It's on both the Ultralightdx and Ndblist Yahoo
photo sites, and also at
