Here's a simple, cost-effective, and easy to build HF receiving antenna using parts found in your ham shack or at the nearest building supply or home improvement center.  For those radio amateurs living in deed-restricted apartments and homes, this compact, lightweight antenna can be used to receive shortwave and ham radio signals without upsetting your neighbors.  The antenna is highly directional and can be used to sidestep noise and interference in your home. Although this loop is not designed to be used with transmitters, it can give your some flexibility in your receiving antennas.  You could always design and build a transmitting magnetic loop antenna to complement this receiving antenna. You then would be totally "stealthy".
