loss resistance of a small loop antenna - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Hi!

What is the formula to calculate the loss resistance of a small loop antenna having a square shape?

The formula I have is for circular loops, but I understand the important quantity is the perimeter, not the shape.

For a copper wire antenna

Loss Resistance is = 0.000996*SQRT(F)*perimeter/diameter of wire

all dimensions in meters and MHz

Caramba

Wrong again. The perimeter and radius should be in feet and inches respectively in the previous posting

And now what is the inductance of a square small loop made of copper wire?

Hi!

See the book Inductance Calculations by Grover - available through Amazon (surprise!).

Good Luck!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
