HAM RADIO: Building a magnetic loop antenna Part 2…
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…
