The figure below shows the magnetic loop antenna for cb band , made of copper wire with a diameter of 2 mm. The antenna has an impedance - 50 ... 75 ohms and a low reactivity. The bandwidth of the magnetic loop antenna - 600 kHz. Air condenser is mounted on a prison setting . The antenna is insensitive to the effects of human and balances. This antenna radiates in the main magnetic component of the electromagnetic wave , it can not compare in terms of field strength with a whip antenna , because the whip antenna emits electrical component of the electromagnetic wave , and measurements for the probe should be carried out on the electrical component and the frame - by the magnetic component . Were compared between the standard helical antenna cb radio and wire magnetic loop antenna was tested in the communication range . It was found that under equal distance communication using magnetic antenna was not less than 1.5 times the open area, and 2 ... 3 times larger in urban environments . In this case, a significant effect of the magnetic orientation of the antenna.
