Magnetic Loop Antenna
« on: February 25, 2018, 06:25:45 PM »
I joined a Facebook group about Magnetic Loop antennas and some guys do some really nice work on their projects. I was wondering if anyone on this forum has an experience with a magnetic loop from 80mtr and up?

I knew there had to be a ham out there somewhere that would try a 160 meter LOOP, Leave it to the Aussies!

Here is the beginning of my 12-40 mtr loop , maybe 80 if the vac is right. I made the loop big enough, maybe 20% efficiency on 80.

There are some australian guys, who are experimenting with a multiloop design and diameter of about 3.5 meters...but works really good.

Hi Tom, hahahah Milka. Yes I will be honest I never paid much attention to loops and thought they were just fancy dummy loads. After building one I know different, its just amazing how good they work. I have a vertical Super Antenna (http://newsuperantenna.com/MP1-SuperStick-Portable-Vertical-Antenna-Deluxe/) and I can tell you the Loop kicks the crap out of this thing, Like I said KH7XS on 100 watts getting a 5/7 report on 40 meters was GREAT!

I am out of commission a bit until my other VacVariable shows up, my Russian one shattered :{ .
