My Low Cost Magnetic Loop Antenna For 10-12 Meters

Here's an excellent antenna idea for those radio amateurs living in deed-restricted housing governed by HOAs and CC&Rs. 

This easily made magnetic loop antenna covers the 10-12 meter Amateur Radio bands and can be made from locally available materials.  The antenna can be used for  home, portable, and emergency use.

The video is clear, concise, and easily understood.  Although several companies produce magnetic loop antennas, it may be more fun "to roll your own".  If you feel ambitious, why not make a magnetic loop antenna for 40 and 20 meters?  You may be surprised just how well these small antennas work.  A compromise antenna is better than no antenna.
