This morning I did some tests at 20 meters. During strong wind force 8 I noticed that I regularly have to tune the baby loop antenna again. Because of the strong wind it seems that the capacity has changed every time.

I would like to hear your experiences.
Thanks in advance!
I wish you all a happy new year.

This allowed the capacitor to vibrate in wind, which of course caused variations in resonate frequency and swr. I simply readjusted the plate with the plastic guide on it so it would lightly
