Add to the fact that I think that with a square looop, and less than 1/4 
wavelength off of the ground, I'm asking for trouble with neighbors and 

At least with the vertically planed square loop at ~100 at the top, half 
of the antenna would be well above the structures of neighborhood 
dwellings, garages and trees and other obsticals that would capture a 
signal, and force it to radiate into a poorly designed peice of 
electronic equipment, acting improperly as a radio reciever...
