Car Windscreen Loop Antenna

Posted on Jul 15, 2012

If you do not like the whip antenna on your car, you may try this alternative circuit. A one-turn loop is installed in the windscreen of the car, keeping possibly away from the metal structure of the car. This loop is terminated in a 6.5mm ring core suitable for VHF use. MW and LW are gathered for by the other coil taken from an old MW radio. This is the oscillator coil of the receiver with all capacitors removed and with the slug fully in. Performance depends very much on the components used. In most cases there was no difference compared with a whip antenna although an improvement was found when traveling in tunnels.
