I have recently installed 40M Sky-loop Antenna to work on 40/20/15 & 10M bands. The loop is fed with coaxial cable RG58U cut to precisely to half wave length on 40M to bring the feed-point impedance inside the shack. The antenna works beautifully on all the four HF bands with SWRs varying from 1 to 2.5 without any matching unit.
Additional bonus was its wonderful operation on 2M, with maximum SWR of about 1.6 !!

That's really great to hear. I'm excited to build and try a Full Wave Loop soon. I wonder how practical it would be for a club even, such as a picnic at a park? Would it be relatively easy to throw up in some trees and/or portable antenna masts? That's definitely something I want to look into...
