Default Re: Antique loop aerial, mains powered

To avoid the need to tune the loop while you tune the receiver you should use an untuned amplified loop like the one discussed in the thread MLA-30 Active loop antenna for valve radios

I was very pleased with mine when used outside with a larger single turn loop, but I've just tried it indoors with 5 turns of thick copper wire, dia about 8 in. This gives good reception of the local and semi-local MW and LW stations, as well as all SW bands. You would need to experiment with a step-up ferrite transformer

Should fit in your radio, and you'd need to find somewhere around 12V DC for it
