Concerning your sky loop: gain continues to increase with increase in freq I.e. multiples of wavelengths over fumdamental. Also, as freq increases angle of reception becomes lower and lower off the  sides. Could be it recieves at too low an angle for your needs above 19meters.. At the fundamental freq it picks up mostly at 90 degrees or overhead. Also, as freq increases feedline losses become more of an issue especially with a feedline impedance mismatch. That's the downside to feeding it with lossy feedline like coax. Overall the big horizontal loop is a very effective antenna for general coverage recieve.  I wish I had one!

Great signal into Nashville,TN.

Good signal in to Nashville Tennessee. Nice wide audio not much suppression on Lower Side Band. Good clean audio. Sounds like station IDs are at full modulation and music is under full modulation

Fair signal but high noise floor (I can hear the power line arc and sizzle when i stand under it)at my location in Nashville, TN. Positive ID @ 0243 and again by d.j. at 0249.  Temptations "And the beat goes on" Would be very nice without the QRN.

Strong signal into Nashville, TN. Good audio.
