Ken, my cage-monopole right now is on FM, where no loading coil is needed.
My AM experiments with cage monopole are entirely imaginary, but are definitely on the agenda.
Now, just all at once, I wonder if there are shortwave apps for the cage. Hmmm.
I do believe in the cage, as you can tell, by my observation that on FM it does better than a single wire. But the improvement is in signal stability within range, not too much increase in range.
