20-metre (wavelength) amateur radio band = 14.000 MHz to 14.350 MHz.

No, this is a small antenna not even one meter in diameter.

HI,
is the talking donne here about 20 meter loop antenna ? really 20m in diameter in vertical position ?

No problem.
I have often answered questions without first reading them properly. So easily done  Wink

if you want to build it for other bands then you can indeed scale it. If you "under-cook it" and find the natural resonance is, say, 14.9MHz, then you can thread a plastic tube between the turns to stagger them and get more space between them, horisontally. Very Happy

If you have any questions then do not hesitate to ask. You are always welcome  Smile

Sorry, just answered my own question. Forgot about the geometry. The wires are actually about 2.8 CM apart.

I was very much interested in your design of your 20 m loop antenna. I want to build one myself although it needs to be a bit smaller and I'm going to build it for 15 m. The question I have, is if you found a self resonance with the wires spaced at 2.5 cm why did you then build it with the wires spaced at 4cm?
