Simple Ham Radio Antennas: Ham Radio 10 Meter Loop Antenna, Part 4 of 4. Post #375.


This is the final installment of Dave Tadlock's (KG0ZZ) 10 meter loop antenna project. With the aid of his daughter Lisa (KC0OHQ), the antenna was tested in the June 2013 ARRL Field Day. Although propagation at that time wasn't very good, Lisa managed to collect quite a few contacts during the daytime hours. This simple loop antenna would make an excellent weekend project. If you feel more ambitious, you could design a loop for any amateur radio band. I have an 80 meter delta loop fed with 450 ohm ladder line that does an excellent job from 80-10 meters. Good luck in your next antenna project. For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebar. These news feeds are updated daily.
