Hi James, AA4ZD,

I have a 250' long, 40 feet high, loop for 75 meters.
I use a 1:1 current balun with my loop. I tried a 4:1
current balun and my ATR-30 tuner would not tune.

Can you tell me what type of balun and tuner, if any,
you use with your loop?

What are the resonant frequencies of your loop
*without* a tuner? My loop will resonate at 3.93 MHz,
7.09 MHz, 13.09 MHz, 17.60 MHz, 20.04 MHz, 26.65 MHz
and 28.10 MHz without a tuner.

Best regards.
