Here's the page I wrote years ago on the split-shield antenna:
Unfortunately, I never took any photos and the antenna is now in pieces
after a couple of moves.
I've also had good luck using an active voltage probe antenna to receive
both WWVB and LORAN-C. The one I used was designed by the AMRAD group
(info at http://www.amrad.org/projects/lf/actant/).
