Default Re: Antique loop aerial, mains powered

No reason why they shouldn't perform as well as one with a single transistor wideband amplifier. Maybe even better for intermodulation with strong signals.

A simple home built tuned loop would probably work just as well though you would have to use a two handed tuning technique to sweep across a band.

gives the general idea.
