Need help to make a powerful antenna

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    Hey,

    So I want to make an antenna which emits powerful waves in the frequency range of 1-50 MHz.

    Yet I don't know exactly how powerful those waves should be, but a normal solenoid is not enough... :P It should be really powerful... :D

    Any help is welcome :)

    What is the purpose of this and what does a solenoid have to do with it?

    Well... I might be wrong but I thougt that it was actually possible to emit EM waves with a solenoid; isn't that the case?

    oh and yeah... I need it actually to do an experiment about nuclear magnetic resonance

    So you want to make an MRI machine then? Or something similar?

    well if you put it like that, yes... but I mean everything I want to do is observing the NMR phenomenon and all I need for the moment is such an antenna... so could anyone help me?
