Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Magnetic loop antenna Dx Contacts Helical Loop Antenna


This is Post # 635. If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please put this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/bNOuzdH2btk. Here's another simple antenna for radio amateurs living in deed-restricted homes and apartments (HOAs and CC&Rs).  In this excellent, well-paced tutorial, Richard Fusinski (K8NDS) shows us how to design, build, and use a helically loaded magnetic loop antenna. Richard shows us two of his designs:  one built for the 20-10 meter amateur radio bands and another for the 80-20 meter amateur radio bands.  These antennas are ideal for antenna-restricted areas or for portable/emergency use.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
