For further experimenters were simulated (with
help of MMANA) a chart of Resonant Frequency (and Amplification) Vs. capacitor capacity (suggested the capacitor has Q= 1000) for squre magloop (5x5 cm made of
wire in diameter of 2 mm or 12 AWG).The magloop
is shown on Figure 2.
Figure 3 shows the chart. Certainly the chart is only
estimate because MMANA can not take all parameters for simulation.
Anyway the chart gives some ideas what is possible to get from
The chart shows that such
magloop may work from 70 up to 190 MHz
(it depends on the capacitor). Experimenters made with the magloop
prove the suggestion. The magloop works
not bad at receiving of FM broadcasting. A coupling loop was used
for the magloop.
