Gear: Antenna experimentations

I still owe a long post on the details of building wood-frame tunes loops, but I have to put together all of the various photos, instructions, etc. One of the problems with these loops is that their figure-8 reception pattern means that if there is a strong station 180-degrees from the weaker station you want to hear, you are stuck. However, there are various ways to get a different reception pattern. The down side is that many of those antennas require a lot of real estate and need to be supported in special ways.
