You put together a very nice webpage re: stealth antennas,and couldn't agree more with you as to how effective the MFJ 1786 Hi Q loop works over 10-30MHz, but that's not the case for the MFJ 1788 that covers 7-21 MHz; for it's 3ft diameter is simply too small on 7MHz and its efficiency on 40 meters is less than 10%. For 40 meters, the loop diameter needs to be at least 5 ft in diameter -so you are not operating with a "wet noodle"- which is the case with the MFJ 1788 on 40 meters. Similar to you, I have found that a Hi Q Loop is by far the best antenna for those who have very little real estate. Hope you are doing well, and once again, you are to be commended for your very informative webpage.

Thank you for the website. Its has been most useful for getting back into the hobby after a long absence and when QRP and stealth will be required. Sorry to hear about your circumstances.

Nice webside you have created! Interesting info about digimodes and other things. I have worked a little with D-Star and have installed a repeater LD8MM (UHF) and have also a Echolink aktive in 24 hours every day. It is easy to communicate when the antenna Daimon X-300 is in my garden! ;) I have also a Igate LA5XFA-10 active. OK...73´s .... de LA5XFA, Rolf (locator: JP66UV)

I have been reading your comments on the saq sdr vlf rx, posted some years ago, which are most useful.
I have recently downloaded and installed an updated version but that isn't of any real consequence.
I have one question, I hope you may be able to help me with so I may get the rx working. You mention you should connect the antenna to the left input of the computer soundcard input. My computer has a single 3.5 mm audio in socket and I have a 3.5 mm cable and stereo plug, which has red, white and blue wires. Which wire should I connect the antenna to anf if I then plug into the audi input socket - will it work?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Great web site, lots of interesting information. I am visiting relatives in Workington from May 8th thru to May 22, and am bringing my ICOM 7000 and a Buddipole antenna. Hope to catch you on the air or an eyeball QSO! Heading to the Workington Ham club meeting when in town.

I really have enjoyed your website, and I am going to try some of the CW apps. I have been licensed over 50 years and had to copy code for my ticket, and I am now getting back into it.

Great site. Good information on stealth antennas. I don't have a need to go stealth, but with limited antenna options at my home, these are great ideas.

Looking at your loop it says to use a 250pF capacitor.
I have a 500pF capacitor and was wondering if this would also work along the same way as your loop article on your site?
Any help would be grateful.
