Coaxial cable magnetic loop for 80 & 160m

If you don't have much horizontal space to string up a wire antenna you could consider a vertical. But that requires significant attention to ground radials. If you can't arrange them and still wish to get on air you could try a coaxial cable magnetic loop. That's super-simple but you may need a capacitor box to bring it to resonance and match it to the transceiver. This video describes my recent experience of one. 

PS: I've now written six books on various aspects of amateur radio. Whether you experiment with antennas, enjoy QRP or are starting out in radio there's a book for you. Find out more here.
