Magnetic Loop Great HF Apartment Antenna. Post #1187.

Here's another magnetic HF loop antenna for those living in deed-restricted housing (HOAs/CC&Rs). Most of the materials used in these loops can be bought at the nearest building supply or home improvement outlet.  The toughest part of the project is the careful bending of the copper pipe used to make the loops. Generally, a nicely done video from the "North Carolina Prepper."  Please note the beautiful ICOM-IC-7000 used for the test.

"North Carolina Prepper" has suggested two websites to help you design, build, and use this magnetic loop antenna:
