Simple 10m loop with 17m bonus

Recommended Posts

Loop antennas are VERY good and at 10/11 meters it's easy due to the small size. Here is an article form a local club member who made his a rectangle shape. This way it conforms to exactly 50 ohms (no balun needed) and with an easy feed point for vertical polarization. The 17 meter part can be a bonus or just eliminate that section if you want to make it a single band antenna.

I have always loved the loops for an antenna, I had one for over 6 years at my other place and have a temporary one at the new place, this temp house here though not feasible, so I have a flattened out inverted V very low, no trees.  My goal will be three loops, one for 160, 80 and 40M at the new place, along with my I10K vertical for 10/11/12M, the Diamond X300 vertical for VHF/UHF, and my 6 element tri-bander for 10/15/20M
