Alright. Ill admit giving in to peer pressure. Its been suggested that I add more excitement to my life. So, on Saturdays, instead of cinnamon added to my coffee, Ill add nutmeg.

   Thanks ThaDood for the very valuable material for repetition and your own experiments.
It gives you to think, instead of placing a typical magnetic loop in the garden, you can see a better SULA directional antenna. The other two parts of the publication are now available.
 When I am old enough that I no longer climb a tree, this antenna will be my salvation. ;D

Sounds promising. I've been pondering several inexpensive readymade and homebrew amplified loops.
