AM Loop Antenna.



I can say enough about the performance of these antennas.  There are tons of instructional websites out there to assist in making one.  I used 24 gauge wire and had to wrap 18 turns to get an inductance of about 250 uH.  With a 365 pF Variable air capacitor, the tuning is so sensitive you have to be careful to not pass stations as you are tuning it.  I wanted it to be 18" tall and wide so I used the simple formula.
a + b = c
This put my diagonals at around 25.45 " long.




This is the 365 Variable air capacitor.  I used my router to counter sink it 1/4 inch and on the back side I have a nice piece of brass to accent the whole project.
