Dick did you ever try an unscreened loop ?? they should be just as good if
not better at 60kHz.

> I used to have one of these marvelous receivers and sold it. I still have
the WWVB/60kHz shielded loop antenna that I made for it and although it is
big, at about 30" x 30" x 2" or so, I believe it will ship FedEx or UPS OK.
It's free to anyone who'll pay the shipping. It's made out of copper pipe
and works quite well, and is tuned for the 5842 at 60kHz.
