HAM RADIO: Building a magnetic loop antenna, part 2

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:


This is post 2526 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

In this video, Mike (M0MSN) completes his magnetic loop antenna.  He lists the components and materials needed for the project and shows us how all the parts fit together.  He finishes the build with some testing and completes a contact once the antenna is in place.

Overall, this project is an example of excellent design, construction, and documentation. 

Here are a few comments from Mike:

So much to do, the construction of a Mag Loop.. Its all been none stop over the past month or two... let me know in the comments below what you want to see me build and I will try to do it. :) This upload is all about building a MagLoop (Magnetic Loop Antenna) its been a long time in the making but has proven to be worth the wait. this is part 2 of a 2 part upload, in this part I will list all the parts and measurements you will need to copy the antenna you see here.. 5M of 22mm Copper Pipe 1M of 15mm Copper Pipe 4 x 22mm straight connectors 2 x 22mm elbows 2 x 15mm elbows 4 x 15mm straight connectors 60 cm of M5 treaded bar Pack of plastic locking joints short length of 20mm conduit. Plank of wood 1 X SO239 1M of RG213 or Ecoflex10 or Westflex 103 Please note, that there is more than one way to build a Mag Loop and I have only shown one such example, the use of PVC for the dielectric may prove to be the incorrect choice (time will tell) and also the type of coupling loop, again maybe a gamma match would be better... To get notified of the next upload .click that bell and subscribe.. Big thank you to Bryan G4BZU and Dameon Hill.. also https://www.nonstopsystems.com/radio/.... (Frank N4SPP) Cheers Mike M0MSN
