For those of you interesting in experimental antenna designs, you may want to build Kevin Loughin's D loop directional half magnetic loop transmitting antenna.  Kevin says he got the idea for this unusual antenna from his research into NVIS (near vertical incident skywave) antenna systems used by the military. Kevin decided to rotate the design vertically and "make a directional magnetic loop."  Kevin says the antenna works "surprisingly well."  The antenna resembles the once popular DDDR antenna described in older editions of the "ARRL Antenna Book."
