Re: 7.5” Loopstick LW antenna not enough inductance?

<<<     I should add that my coil is wound with 175/46 Litz, perhaps a little smaller diameter than the specified 100/44 Litz. I've found it works even better at LF, in fact I've found all the types of /46 Litz work better at LF than /44 Litz.

Thanks Steve,

This must be why my 12" Longwave FSL wound with 1162/46 Litz wire was able to track down four new South Pacific NDB's at the Rockwork cliff this month (320-AI, 346-TG, 352-RG and 366-PNI) that I never could get with the 660/44 Litz wire :-)

73, Gary
