Hi, Jim, yes. In fact if you look in your User Manual at the page titled "Electrical and mechanical specifications" on the bottom right-hand side is the loop radiation pattern and on the left-hand side is a drawing of the loop, and the "Front" is marked.

I think so Adrian, thanks! So I need to work out which direction the gamma match is pointing to work out the ‘front’ which continuing the wheel analogy, is the direction of travel (at 90 degrees to the axle). Therefore the arrow pointing ‘Front’ in the manual IS -at right angles to what I described is looking through the loop (ie directly into the empty space in the circle). That helps massively! Thanks!
