Today, you are a member of… Quadrophenia

What’s loopier that a loop antenna, Members? This little piece of engineering has been around since John Stone Stone’s patent applications of January 1903 and its fine radiometry is a core componant of two of the wackier instruments of the 20th century: the Theremin and the Moog Synthesizer. Plus, despite its name, it involves a balanced transmission line and often is shaped like a kite. So this week, whether your soundtrack is ethereal & eerie or tends toward rogue (rhymes with Moog), rest assured, you’ll get some nice self resonance and enjoy only the highest of frequencies.
