<br><br>A gridpack dish, Yagi or other high gain directional antenna will do<br>better. Most foxhunters use Yagis down to 144 MHz.</blockquote><div><br>The problem with directional antennas is that you have to be pointing it in the "right" direction to get an indication of the direction of the source. Antenna arrays and loop antennas give you an indication of direction without you having to move, or (more importantly in my application) /despite/ your heading.
