Reply to "Will painting an overhead ground plane wire degrade its performance?"

One of the inherent problems with a 455KHz signal system is the size of the loco mounted antenna compared with the signal wavelength. This is called aperture which means the ability of an antenna to capture significant signal. I have extended the antenna length in one problem loco by wrapping it around inside and it did seem to improve somewhat.
