6-Meter loop antenna presentation

As promised, here is the presentation I presented at the Jan 16 club meeting.  I put up an adobe PDF file as well as the Powerpoint file.  I also started a forum thread if people want to share ideas.   If you want to build one, the dimensions in the presentation under "wires" are a good place to start for a free space ant.  Thanks for attending even though the wx was not so good.
