Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) enjoys experimenting with antennas. He especially likes to design antennas for portable operations, including what he calls "Pedestrian Mobile."
In this video, Peter compares two magnetic loop antennas for the "Pedestrian Mobile" situation--one being made from copper tubing and the other fashioned from aluminum tubing. According to Peter, both magnetic loop antennas performed well on the 40 meter Amateur Radio Band, with contacts ranging between 300 and 1500 kilometers.
You can find more magnetic loop antennas on his website at vk3ye.com.
