This is post #974 in a continuing series of articles on simple ham radio antennas. In this video, G6URM gives us a quick look at his home made magnetic loop antenna which covers the 7-10-14 MHz portion of the radio spectrum. Radio amateurs know these segments as the 40, 30, and 20 meter bands. The construction is straight forward, using available materials found in the shack. In this case, G6URM made this mag loop "from a lump of HELIAX and some junk box stuff." You could also find much of the antenna's materials at the nearest hardware store, building supply outlet, or a neighborhood garage sale. Despite calling this antenna a "delta loop" (he admits to the error), the project is well made and seems to work very well from G6URM's location. Magnetic loop antennas are small, compact, and suitable for operations in deed-restricted housing. For the latest amateur radio news and information, please visit these websites:
