Magnetic Loop Antenna Calculator • 66pacific.com
Small transmitting loop antennas, commonly called "magnetic loops" or "mag
loops," can give surprisingly good performance when they
are carefully designed and constructed. Although this online calculator is intended to assist with designing and building homemade, ham radio loop antennas for use in the HF bands, magnetic antennas have been constructed that function in the VHF or even the UHF frequencies. The most common material for home building small ham radio loop antennas is common copper plumbing pipe.This calculator enables you to test the
design of an octagonal loop antenna and to answer "what if" questions until you arrive at
a design that meets your needs without a lot of experience in electronics.
