Ham Radio: Finished 80m Band Wire Spiral Loop


After a month-and-a-half of effort, Mike (M0MSN) has finished his 80 meter Spiral Loop Antenna.  The final product works well and promises to produce excellent results on the often noisy 80 meter Amateur Radio Band.

This is post 2392 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Here are some comment from Mike (M0MSN):

Well this has been a stop and start project, due to work commitments it has taken me over 6 weeks to complete this antenna, but the time spent, was worth it. I have to take my hat off to Frank and thank his for a great website (linked below) without his research and brilliant record keeping this project would not have got off the ground. Please check it out at : https://www.nonstopsystems.com/radio/... Now for a list of what is needed and measurements please refurbs to Franks website, I have followed the plans and instructions to the letter and have manage to produce a fantastic working Spiral Loop antenna for the 80 metre band that works. I have changed one or two parts of the design, this was to allow the introduction of a home made capacitor for higher power handling unto 200Watts and also the frame has been updated for products available today. I managed to get some good results from this antenna and over the next month or two I will compare it with my Twin Copper Magnetic Loop. something too look out for....perhaps. Thanks for watching my take on this build. Please subscribe and like. Cheers Mike - M0MSN P.S. do not take my word for it, give it a go for yourself.
