HiVHF Shorted Bowtie Loop (NO Reflector)
Hi-VHF Shorted Bowtie Loop (46-in Diameter using Half-Inch Copper Tubing) analyzed using 4nec2.

Optimized for Hi-VHF Band (Ch7-13) but also provides minimal performance on Ch6 & FM Band.
CH2-5 also have 2.6-3.0 dBi of Raw Gain, but SWR becomes excessive on lowest channels.
