AMATEUR STATION H
Station H was located at a single-story residence. A large horizontal loop antenna was the subject of measurements at this station. Its shape was that of a large rectangle extending around the
perimeter of the back yard and over the roof the residence. This antenna is essentially omni-directional. It can be used for several frequency bands and has been referred to as a "loop
The leg of the rectangle extending over the roof of the house was about 20 m in
length. The two perpendicular segments were each about 21 m in length and extended back across the roof toward the backyard, over the respective edges of the yard, and up the rather steep slope of
hill at the rear of the yard. The remaining segment of the rectangle was about 20 m long and followed the ridge of the hill to complete the loop. The antenna was fed at a corner of the antenna over the roof. The height above ground to the antenna ranged from about 8 m at the feed point to as little as 1-2 m along the ridge of the hill. The antenna constituted a full-wave loop at about 80 m wavelength (3.75 MHz). Measurements were made both inside and outside the house at transmitting frequencies of approximately 3.7, 7.1, 14.1, 21, and 28 MHz. Results are given in Table 25.
