Did this video help you?

Rumchaser: Nice I like your videos thanks for the hard work you put in 

Myles Nicholas: Cool first experiment with your Magloop, I prefer a Faraday Induction loop made from RG 58 coax.
The cap for fixed frequency on my Magloops is a length of RG213 inner slid into one end and a strap to the other end.
Different lengths for different bands - so easy.
My current Magloop uses self tapper to an inner insert.

BTW I have copper Magloops in all sizes, single and 2 el series types.

David Knapp: This looks like a good home brew project for QRP portable use, too bad the Magnum 1012 is no longer available. Dave - KU9L

Sellers Hymel: Appreciate this, thank you WA5SAT

Tommy Schales: Sir, if you could post on here the 1/5 size of the transformer, the little circle. it would be helpful to me i would like to build this ant. i am not good with fractions in math so your help would be appreciated very much.

Fred196407: I'm really thankful for your video. I've been licensed for a few years but never really had much time for radio. Now circumstances have changed and I can start playing again.
I kind of looked at Magnetic loops some years ago but not in detail. Now you have nicely broken the method down it is so much easier than I first thought. I think maybe back at the start I saw calculations that probably scared me off but had I seen it describe and drawn like that then I would have made one for sure. I certainly will now. Thanks! 

Bill McGraw: RadioHamGuy, I didn't catch your full call sign if you don't mind. I've watched the video twice and saved it with 2 pages of drawn notes, very neat loop antenna.

Bill McGraw: I like it !! and your wall, like the meter, copied all your descriptions, studying antennas several years, electronics on net, sub- taught some at school, 70 yr old new ham, 3 yrs General, Kenwood 2000, Astron 35A pwr supply & an old RS-DX-398 with aerial/ground used for Xtal sets, other receivers DX-390 melted in fire, back to 55 yrs ago, 2 Hallicrafter receivers, crude Xtal sets even now, 1N34 as well as a rusty nail & corroded penny and sharp pin detector, working on others. Busy life, retired disabled 22 yrs ago Vo-Tec Guidance Counselor Comm. College, took lots of free night classes, still an idiot with my radio and PC, have lots of parts.

mbb373: what is the value of the germanium diode that you used?      great build !

mike mathews: Great project to experiment with.

purplemutantas: I tried a loop once. The capacitor I used was a pain to tune. I have a capacitor with a reduction gear that should be easier to tune. I have been thinking of making a loop antenna based on the Alex Loop walk ham. I like the idea of a loop that breaks down for  transport.

Michael Iddon: Very very cool, Love the bloopers at the end !!

Tom Yang: I see two Forger coffee cans :)   I've got three on my bench

Pat Savage: Very cool!

Eddie Leighton: I'm well on my way to start playing with magnetic loops !

Luiz C Balista: Congratulations!  Fantastic explantion and practical hints. (PY2CN)

Rich W: SWR??? have you ever related the peek power out with the SWR the HT sees???

KB2CWN: Great video Larry and nice project. I just purchased a used 1012, and I have been rattling my brain on an antenna project for extended range. This just might be doable.

johnnieace45: I'm going to make one this weekend for my 20 meter CW QRP rig

Vasile Pop: Congratulations!
Wonderful video. Production quality is so great that it is a pleasure to watch it!
