Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Magnetic Loop Antenna Demonstration. Post #752.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/gc3ITr2swgU.  Thanks to George Becht for this video demonstrating and reviewing a multiband HF magnetic Loop Antenna designed by N2SQ.  The video gives us a good look at the capacitor box, plus some actual contacts on 17, 20, and 15 meters.  The antenna also works on 30 meters.  The coax is RG-8 with a solid Teflon dielectric using only the shield of the coax.  The center conductor is not connected.  The capacitor is a 25-100pf air variable gear type bought for $2.00 at the 2014 Orlando HamCation.  This magnetic loop antenna would be useful in HOA/CC&R controlled homes and apartments, as well as for portable and emergency use.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
