Simple Ham Radio Antennas--100 watt 7 MHz magnetic loop for units and apartments. Post #809.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/Cv_RnLpZ9gw. Another great video tutorial from Peter Parker (VK3YE).  In this program, Peter describes and demonstrates a 100 watt 7 MHz magnetic loop antenna suitable for apartment, portable, and emergency use.  Peter says "there are no hard to get parts or complex workshop skills needed to build this antenna."  Rather than use expensive air variable capacitors to bring the antenna into resonance, Peter uses a length of RG-213 coaxial cable for the task (1.85 meters/6.06 feet). The sliding capacitors measure approximately 6 cm x 8 cm (2.3 inches x 3.14 inches).
