Author found a ratio between the lengths of the sides of the Delta Loop that give reasonably low SWR into a 50 ohm coaxial cable almost independent of the high above ground and other surroundings. This ratio also gives good results no matter orientation. Includes an online delta loop antenna calculator.
It is possible to add a very small Bluetooth transmitter to the 3.5mm headphone jack and then use a pair of Bluetooth headphones around the shack. In this article Author provides some tips on choosing the proper Bluetooth interface.
The Quarter-wave stub can be used for many purposes. If it is left with an open end it can be used as a notch filter to attenuate certain frequencies. A quarter wave length of a transmission line can also be used as an impedance transformer, to know more about the Quarter-wave impedance transformer
We use the term air core coil to describe an inductor that does not depend upon a ferromagnetic material to achieve its specified inductance. This covers the cases where there really is just air inside as well as windings upon a different insulator such as bakelite, glass or PTFE etc. Do you need an air coil?
