Has anyone had experience with or can comment on the WFL (Wideband Folded Loop Antenna) apparently manufactured in Germany? by RF Systems? This antenna appears to be similar to a T2FD but is double folded and is only 7-7.5 M long. W0NTS

Any broadband antenna without a tuning system of inductors or coils, and using a resistor, is going to have efficiency issues. The smaller it is in physical dimensions, the lossier it will be. There is no way to fix that.

If bandwidth is important and efficiency is not, it will probably work.
