Abstract: In the short-wave range, size of the antenna become large and therefore is a major constraint. Magnetic Loop Antenna provides an advantage over other antennas in terms of a smaller size, higher quality factor and better signal to noise ratio. It works on the principle of resonance with the inductor provided by loop and external tuning capacitor operating like a tank circuit. The tunable magnetic loop antenna is designed to work in the high frequency range. The antenna consists of a circular hollow copper pipe, an inductive loop feed and a variable tuning capacitor. The antenna is tuned using variable 9-140pF capacitor paralleled with 150pF capacitor. The designed antenna is simulated using 4NEC2 software. The simulated antenna has high efficiency and quality factor of more than 1000. The real time testing show great result at 5.45MHz with bandwidth of 8KHz.
