This is post 2348 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

If you live in deed-restricted housing (HOA/CC&Rs) or like to experiment with small antennas, then this "spiral loop antenna" from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) may be the "stealth" antenna you're looking for.

Kevin has adapted designs from Harry (SM0VPO) and Frank (N4SPP) for this project.  Here are some general comments from Kevin:

NOTE: SM0VPO is not Richard. He’s Harry Lythall. My apologies to Harry. I've wanted to try out a spiral loop for awhile. I loosely followed Frank, N4SPP's notes on his page linked below. Pretty easy to throw together, broader bandwidth than a traditional magnetic loop.
