One of the greatest achievements I have achieved with the loop magnetic antenna is two qso's with New Zeeland and a reception check from VK6 Australia, all on the same date, 12 a.m. on the 25th July 2016. As confirmation of said communications, and receipt checks, here is the copy of an email sent from Australia at the time.

"Today I did copy your qso's with Willem ZL3CHE and Rolly ZL4AU on the 40mtr band and before, your qso with K4 in Virginia, USA. Your signal here was very good. Starting at 57 on my meter with your qso with the K4 and peaking 58 at the end of your qso with Rolly. I copy that you were using a "Magnetic Loop" 2 mtrs above your roof and I think you said 3 mtrs diameter and your 200W. Here it is very early for dx from Europe. It is 3pm, about 2 hours before my sun set. Signals from Europe, at this time on 40 mtr band are best in about 1 hour later. Your signal was equal with other dx stations for this time, such as F4BEW and F5BZB and at this time I did hear no other stations from Europe. So i think your magnetic loop is working amazing, considering band conditions are not great and because this is not a great antenna and and it is not very high. My antenna is a 160m dipole, so on 40 mtrs band is 2 wavelength centre fed extended double zepp type antenna about 30 mtrs high. I know you were having big qrm, so unfortunately you did not copy me calling you. Also I see your beautiful Drake restoration work, excellent. I hope to make a qso with you on 40 one day soon or meet with you on another band."
