Even at 9:1, I still think it would need to be fed with ladder line. Another possibility would be to cut the elements to 5/8 wl and use a 450 ohm matching stub, basically a EDZ. It might show enough gain to be worth the hassle. A 1 wl sky loop sounds interesting, but if I was to spend the $$ on that much tubing I think I'd go with a Moxon rectangle for more gain and directivity.
