Ham Radio Antennas-Magnetic Loop experiments. Post #1524.

One of the joys of Amateur/Ham Radio is the ability to experiment with antennas and various pieces of equipment.  We can learn a lot about our hobby by just getting down to "the nuts and bolts" of designing, building, and testing our homemade accessories and repairing our equipment.  This is particularly true of antennas, where unconventional designs often work very well.

In this video, Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) continues his series on magnetic loop antennas by showing and testing some of his designs built on his workbench.  Most of Kevin's projects use locally available materials from neighboring home improvement and hardware stores.  If you're in an experimental mood, why not try some of Kevin's magnetic loop antenna designs?  These simple projects should be of particular interest to those operating in deed-restricted properties controlled by HOAs and CC&Rs.
