I need to improve my QTH antenna. My understanding is a loop antenna (e.g. copper loop) is rather directional as normally installed. My question is whether it would be more omnidirectional if installed horizontally instead of vertically?

I'd appreciate any advice or comments.

Looking for feedback on an antenna to replace my 40 meter doublet. I have a decent sized backyard at my new QTH but it's cut in half lengthwise by a powerline running from the alley to the house and not a lot of footage on either side to safely put up another dipole. The only safe place for an antenna (vertical) is on the side of the house away from any powerlines should it fall. The area i have to work with is about 3-4 foot wide by 10 foot long (not much room for radials). I was recommended a Chameleon CHA-MPAS antenna to use with my TS -940S and AT2K but am very hesitant about the price. The reviews I have seen are mostly QRP or vague as to its performance on the bands and was hoping for either a suggestion for another antenna or better review of the band performance of the MPAS other than QRP. Than you for any guidance.

I have a question, i bought a10 band vertical antenna, it is effectively a dipole. I am having some issues tuning it using my mfj analyzer. I tuned 80m, 40m, 30m and 20 was just trashed.

I could tune no further so i thought i will go in and see how the tuned bands work out, my tuner had issues tuning to it, almost a minute to tune 80m.

Something is not right, so i am looking for some advice, tips or tricks on getting this right.
