With a little ingenuity and some suggestions from NG9D, you, too, can design, build, and use a full wavelength 80 meter loop on a small urban lot. NG9D used materials already in his ham shack to build this effective, simple antenna that covers 80meters-10 meters with an antenna "tuner." Be aware that the "light wire" used in this homebrew project can suffer ill effects from bad weather. Despite the sag from ice and snow, the antenna still works.
