A good, basic discussion of the theory and use of loading coils.  Loading coils are used to reduce the physical length of a resonant antenna and are found in a variety of home made and commercially-available antennas.  This video from Carl Lewis simple, hands on, and to the point.  Keep a copy of this video in you ham radio library for future reference.
