Magnetic Loop Antenna

A good overview of how loop antennas work by an example project of PA3FG (10-17 meter antenna).

A very interesting project file from including all necessary measurements for production: Magnetic Loop Antenna

Safety advice:
Care must be taken not to touch the loop when transmitting and to keep a safe distance away from the loop’s magnetic near-field to ensure conservative compliance with electromagnetic radiation / EMR standards for human exposure to EM fields. A distance equal to or greater than one or two loop diameters away is generally a safe field strength region . RF burns to the skin from touching the loop while transmitting are very unpleasant and take a long time to heal.
