Big loop oscillator

L1 is a loop of 10 to 20 turns of insulated wire with a diameter anywhere between 4` to 4'. Oscillator frequency (7 to 30 MHz) shifts substantially when a person comes near or into the loop. This oscillator together with a resonant detector might make a very good anti-personnel alarm.
