Has anybody actually tried this? I'm not talking about loading up your gutters. I have a one story house. I'm not even sure of the perimeter dimensions, but I've been thinking of making a loop of insulated hookup wire inside my gutter--running it all around my house, just laying in the aluminum gutter, and feeding it with ladder line and a tuner. A low, horizontal loop of uncertain dimensions. I'm concerned about shielding by the aluminum gutter and overall effectiveness. I know that I'll be trying it soon, just to see if "it works," but has anybody else tried this already? Decent results, or not really? I have several antennas already, but have been itching to try this one for a couple of years. However, I'm waiting for a really cold, really windy, and really miserable day to do my antenna work this fall.
Thanks! 73, Tony
Why don't you drape a wire around the house first and see how it works, then drop it into the gutter and check out the difference?
