In part two of Kevin's (KB9RLW) mini magnetic loop transmitting antenna, we see how a few minor changes can enhance the performance of this small, "stealthy" antenna.  According to Kevin, this is final version of his mini magnetic loop antenna, which was made "from scrounged junk in my basement."  Kevin says the antenna "works surprisingly well" using only 0.5 watts in the WSPR mode.  This antenna will give radio amateurs living in deed restricted homes, apartments, and condominium units an way to get on the air without rasining the suspicions of nosey neighbors.
