Is it possible to create a loop antenna array to make loop antennas more omnidirectional? I would like to modify our current reciever. It consists of two loop antennas, one of which appears to be a parrisitic element. I would like an antenna that would be "more" omnidirectional. I have proven we can get a dramatic increase in performance by adding a third orientation, but this solution was expensive, (each antenna had its own receiver/amplifier section input into a summing amplifier). If I can expect of get similar performance from an array it would be a significant cost savings.
