    VK5SFA 160 Meter Magnetic Loop Antenna

    Steve Adler, VK5SFA, is a lifelong lover of radio and electronics, worked in the broadcast industry, and has recently retired. Steve developed a skill set and relationships that helped him to create a 160 and 80 meter magnetic loop antenna that won him first prize in the 2018 QST Antenna Design Competition. The process of building this antenna and its documentation is representative of VK5SFA’s dedication and attention to all of his previous ham radio projects that he mentions in this QSO Today.

    Great interview...have built Rx loops for over 50 years but not a Tx loop. Steve’s work may get me started on one.
