This is post #977 in a continuing series on Simple Ham Radio Antennas. Experimenting with antennas is one of the fun things to do with Amateur Radio.  One never knows how a project will turn out until the creation is tested on the air. Such is the case with this 1-foot/.304 meters miniloop transmitting antenna designed by Kevin Laughin (KB9RLW).  Despite the antenna's small size, it works fairly well. Not bad for an experimental concept.  This antenna would be ideal for deed-restricted housing controlled by HOAs and CC&Rs.  Kevin's miniloop transmitting antenna is not efficient, but it works! Why not build one for your shack?
