Square Loop Antenna
The total length of the loop is about 0.4 wavelengths, so the current distribution shows a semi-cycle of a sine function. The radiation pattern is not donut-shaped since the size of the loop is comparable to the wavelength.
To obtain a donut-shaped pattern, the frequency must be decreased until the loop size approach one-tenth of the wavelength.
