MAGNETIC LOOP FOR 160M

Page (and Antenna) under construction!

 


Tuning capacitor and section of 160m-loop
(7/8" Cellflex-Cable, 2.8m diameter)


The loop is suspended under the roofspars, sloping 30 to the south


Coupling loop with no galvanic connection to the magnetic loop


Calculated values (Program HB9ABX)


Real values measured with MiniVNA
(note bandwidth of 2200Hz and high Q !)


Capacitor, 500pF ceramic (8kV) in parallel with 360pF variable (6kV)


...another view of the capacitor assembly, note the heavy brass connectors
