“I decided to build a magnetic loop antenna that would cover the ham radio frequencies from around 20 to 30 Mhz so I could use it on portable with my Magnum 1012 hand held radio. This is what I come up with.
Since those bands are heating up now with the progress of the new sun spot cycle, this should be fun to use with the low power output of the radio and should make a better antenna than the duck antenna since it is a very high-q tuneable antenna.

“My first 20 metre contact on the FX9B with a LZ Station. A little thumbling around in the beginning with some settings . I also had to increase power though to work him, as can be seen their was a lot of QSB. These new HF transceiver... Read more
