Resonant frequency of loop antenna

  1. Oct 14, 2006 #1
    Hello All,

    I'm wondering if there is some nifty formula out there that will tell me how much wire I will need to wind a loop antenna if I know what the diameter of the loop will be and the frequency that I want to tune into?

    Try the ARRL handbook.
    They cover construction of all sorts of antennas.
