Loop with 4 or 6 turns
- View SourceHi
I have made a 90cm loop with 14mm CATV-cable (it has a
full cu tube :-)). This loop is designed mainly for listening
on 40 meters and none HAM freq. around 40 meters. Goes from
about 6,3 Mhz to 11,5 Mhz with the capacitor im using (taken
from a dead kitchen radio :-)). I have been calculatin on
it with AA5TB excel sheet and it seem that theory and practical
goes well :-)
Now i would like to make a much larger loop with the same
type of coax (i work for a Cable operator so therefore its
easy for me getting the stuff :-)) but if i consider a 6 meter
loop it's so large it's impossible to handle, what happens
if i do it in 5 turns with a diameter of 1,2 meters ?
And what spacing between each turn should i use ?
The feeder loop what dimension should i use, i have used 1/5
circumfence on the 40 m loop.
Hop to have some good advises :-)
