Hi All,
This is Terry
I made a plastic pipe structure for my Small Magnetic Loop (SML) and installed four 3/4 in diameter copper tubes, effectively 3 inches diameter which makes an excellent SML antenna. but then realized it was not good for portable, which is all I do now. Many Hams who have them have worked the world with QRP (and less copper).  This SML is 1 meter diameter and is 90% efficient on 160-10 meters if good connections are made.  It requires a butterfly capacitor ($68 at MFJ) (or vacuum variable) and is low profile for housing issues.  It is low to the ground and if 2 meter long radials are added it adds 5 dB gain. I will sell it for $100. It is a great antenna for home use (even indoors), but not for portable.  It has a 1/5 meter diameter small loop, inside the big loop, which feeds the loop with a 50 ohm matched load (no matching problems).  The antenna is tuned with the variable capacitor, with a VSWR meter or just listening to the increase in band noise.  If anyone knows who might be interested,

I can be contacted at
