Here's another clever magnetic loop antenna for radio amateurs unable to erect antennas because of CC&R and HOA restrictions.

Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) calls his creating a "spiral loop antenna" for 20 meters.  The video does a good job of explaining the theory, construction, and operation of this magnetic loop antenna variation.  Most of the materials can be found in your ham shack or at the nearest home improvement and building supply outlet.  This is a fun and educational project that will deliver good performance at a moderate cost.
