    If the given formula for a 1/2 wave Dipole is 468/F(Mhz), and a full wave loop would be 1005/F(Mhz),
    And at VHF the formula changes to 475/F(Mhz),....What is the formula for a Full wave loop
    at VHF? I don't recall seeing it anywhere...
    Guess I'll have to GooGle it some more...But all I find are references to 1005/F

    If you're using thin wire, the formula is the same. HOWEVER, if you're using tubing, you'll have to shrink it by maybe 5%

    By the way W4RNL's books on cubical quads are the definitive authorities for loops of all kinds.

    Don't forget you have to covert furlongs to fathoms and move the decibel point to the left.

    Ouch! (That was my YL slapping me upside the noggin) :confused:

    Maybe its 468 is to 475 as 1005 is to WHAT or 468/475 = 1005/X and X = 1020 or maybe its not.

    468/f and 1005/f are only guidelines, not true formulas. They do not produce precise results, only starting points.

    If it's Nacho cheese, you shouldn't be eating it...
    I really like Chili cheese, Especially Chili chese fries...

    On the serious side... (Oh S(Censored)TT!!, Bubba's being serious)
    Anybody got the book that can give me the ISBN??
