An inexpensive 3-Band Magnetic Loop Antenna

Here's another great antenna idea for radio amateurs living in deed-restricted homes or apartments.  Why not build a simple magnetic loop antenna for home or portable operations?

In this video, Dennis Blanchard (K1YPP) describes an easy method to build a simple magnetic loop antenna covering three popular HF bands (40/30/20 meters).

This clever, imaginative magnetic loop antenna can handle 100 watts input and costs around $20.00 USD.

Although magnetic loop antennas have some drawbacks, they will get you on the air at minimum cost.  Better a compromise antenna than no antenna at all.
