The Iwp has worked very niccly for me, I stand it in the middle of the lloor and have no trouble working all 1 can reasonably hear. Recently* it was interesting to pick up a signal from a repeater located on Long Island. By rotating the loop, i was able to hring the signal up to a very reasonable level, 1 could not work that repeater because the local machine would come on and cover up Long Island. I was impressed by the directivity of a single loop, however. This self-supporting loop has worked very well and is a simple alternative to running higher transmitter power.
