Its that time of year again - the trout season is over and the low bands are calling.
I'm wondering how big / complex you can go with an UL antenna and it still be considered as UL?
For example, an FSL is relatively mechanically complex, is ultra-heavy (in terms of mass), but occupies a relatively small amount of space.
An air core loop is bigger, more mechanically simple and potentially low-mass.
A longwire is very simple and can be extremely light depending on dimensions and material choice. A BOG could be simpler still. However, we are then getting into the realms of traveling wave antennas which I get the feeling is considered "unsporting" in the world of ULDX.
More simply: are simple, big wire antennas not appropriate? What about complexity - is an FSL not UL because of its lack of simplicity?
I know these are very subjective questions - I welcome all opinions.
