Hi-VHF Figure-8 Twin Loops - NO Refl
Hi-VHF "Figure-8" Twin Circular Loops with NO Reflector analyzed using 4nec2.
Optimum size is 24-in Diameter, using QICT (Quarter-Inch Copper Tubing).

Hi-VHF Raw Gain = 5.6 to 6.4 dBi and SWR (300-ohms) Under 2.6.

HiVHF Circular Loops
Compare Single vs Twin (Figure8) Loops

Only a small increase in Gain.  Better use of
materials to use a Reflector Loop instead.
