    As man-made noise levels become ever more problematic for radio amateurs, particularly those that are serious about weak-signal DX on the lower bands (160 / 80m), the ‘Loop On Ground’ or ‘LOG’ is proving to be a worthwhile
    improvement for some.

    Bud, VA7ST, near Kelowna, has done some recent experimenting with a LOG as
    an alternative to listening with his 160 / 80m transmitting antennas and
    has written a great blog on his findings.

    Bud has included some ‘A-B’ tests comparing the LOG to his normally-used vertical or inverted-L and the results are quite interesting.

    If you’ve ever considered building a separate quieter low-band antenna,
    you can find everything you might need to get motivated as well as a nice listing of LOG-related links in Bud’s very helpful blog:
