What are Dipole & Halo Loop Antennas?
A dipole antenna is the most widely used class of antenna, so if you've read up on amateur radio systems before, then you'll have undoubtedly heard of it. They consist of two identical conductive elements, usually either wires or poles, which is where the name dipole comes from (di meaning two).
A halo loop antenna, on the other hand, is a type of dipole antenna that’s been bent into a circle rather than retaining its original shape. The two ends of the circle don't touch, and this spacing can be adjusted to alter the antenna's resonant frequency.
Both are great additions to your amateur radio setup, and it's worth experimenting with both to see which yields the best results.
