If you ever wanted to make a multiband magnetic loop antenna, but were afraid to take on the complexity of such a project, then this interesting, innovative video from Dennis Blanchard (K1YPP) may change your mind. 

By using commonly available materials, Dennis show us a simple, practical method of designing, building, testing, and using a magnetic loop antenna for three amateur radio bands (40/30/20 meters). 

According to Dennis, the antenna costs approximately $20.00 USD and is capable of handling up to 100 watts (although he recommends keeping the power below 40 watts).  This antenna would make a great addition to a field day site or to a simple home-based amateur radio station.
