DOES well ;-) (I should be on the air, right now in fact. And will be,
when I get through with this message)
As it's been explained to me, a 'loop' is basically a folded-dipole
that's been pulled apart.
Quad elements, Bry, by virtue of their name, have -4- side (Quad = 4)
Detla is more of a Triangle shaped creature (Tri = 3).
So, this three sided antenna is apexed at around 60', and the feed line
is along a sloping element. Works wonderfully well.
