Antenna success #1

Another 6 metre antenna, this time a magnetic loop given to me by a friend. I made a new coupling loop and strengthened the mechanical arrangement a bit and the result is a nice, neat antenna which will be ideal for portable use.
Typical of small transmitting loops this antenna has a very narrow bandwidth but thanks to a well chosen split stator variable capacitor value it is not at all difficult to tune, even without a reduction drive.
