I've always found the "tuning" process involved with small magnetic loop antennas to be somewhat tedious.  These antennas are very sensitive to small changes in frequency and adjustments can be a bit taxing. 

But, thanks to this excellent, informative video from Johnny of "Signal Search", the tuning process can become easier and less stressful.

In this video, Johnny uses a magnetic loop design by W4OP.  As with many magnetic loop antennas, adjustment of the coupling loop is vital to precise tuning.  With a little time and effort, small magnetic loop antennas can become viable options for those operating in deed-restricted homes or apartments.
