Pedestrian mobile and the magnetic loop with VK3YE

I've been using a 40M magnetic loop antenna for a while now and have been impressed with the low noise and high performance, especially considering its stuck in the middle of my garage!

I'd been thinking about a smaller loop that could sit in the attic with a remote tuner but had been put off by the critical requirements ... minimal dc resistance etc.

Now I have seen Peter and his portable loop I may have to reconsider brewing something up and giving it a shot. I'd like it to handle a bit more than 5W but that should be achievable with parts I already have in the junk box.
