Magnetic Loop Antenna Resources

Some folks have been asking me what resources I used to build my magnetic loop. There are many - but these are the principle ones I used:

There's a veritable ton of information out there and if I had more time, I probably would have done even more research. The above listed links got me going in the right direction.

There was also a good article in a recent issue of "QRP Quarterly" in the "Idea Exchange" column that was a big help. I'll update this post tonight when I get a chance to see exactly which issue it was, as I don't have it with me right now.  That article and the G4ILO link above were my two primary resources.

Truth be told, building the antenna itself was the easy part - in fact a lot easier than I thought it would be.  Finding a suitable capacitor, enclosure and learning how to put PL-259s on LMR-400 was the hardest part.

If you've been hesitating ...... don't.  It's a super easy project that you can have a lot of fun with.
