It looks like we have a spammer. ^^^

I think I have a problem. I just got my Wellbrook FLX1530LN. I made my own 1 meter single turn loop. All my cabling is using RG6Q and BNC compression fittings, and all I’m picking up is a high noise floor. I thought for sure I would be able to pick up some MW local broadcasts but I get nothing.

Is there something about RG6Q that is suboptimal?

From https://www.loop-antennas.com/wellbrook/North_American/FLX1530LN-flexible-loop:
“The user provides the coaxial loop. It simply consists of 3-5m length of LMR400 or a much lower cost RG58c or similar with BNC males.”

Mike has a video showing his loop setup in an apartment in Florida and he’s getting a lot better results than I am!
