Contemplating a big magnetic loop antenna.
- Would a wide copper strip be better than a tube with the same conducting surface?
- Where will all the current be due to the skin effect?
- Would a flat ring be better or a wide ring, when looking at the broad side of antenna?
Ohmic loss is very important for this type of antenna. (Interested, because new design from DL5MCC http://www.dl5mcc.de/ does not need high voltage variable capacitor.)
By "big" i meant at least 2 meter diameter.
