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.
