VE3KQN/qrp - VE3MO/qrp

Since 2013/11/30  I have been using a 28 inch diameter, home brew magnetic loop antenna, indoors, on 80m thru 10m with my QRP radios - Wilderness Radio Sierra or Youkits HB1B with an average output power of 2 to 3 watts..
My outdoor antenna came down in the Ice storm of December 2013 and my end support tree was removed by the city in the summer of 2014 due to ice damage. Currently I have no plans to put my antenna back up again for a while as I am enjoying the QRP challenge with the loop. At times I will put up a single element, simple antenna for those "serious" moments such as some contests. In the past year - Nov 30, 2013 to Nov 30, 2014 I have made over 780 contacts on the loop antenna. Thanks to all who have taken the time to pull my signals off the "noise floor".
  Large loop - 87 inches of 3/4" x 1/16" aluminum strapping (6 sections secured together and laminated for
  strength with the same type of aluminum strapping).
  Small loop - 22 inches of 300 ohm TV twin lead clipped to the larger loop.
  Tuning capacitor - approx.  37 pf to 313 pf, isolated from the vernier dial to prevent hand capacitance.
  Coax - 16 feet of RG 58 (50 ohm) with two emi ferrite cores.
First licenced in 1978.
Obtained my "Advanced Amateur Licence" in 1981 (before grandfathering).
I do all QRP HF CW operations, both home and as a field operational station - i.e. wilderness/portable etc.
I also do a lot of operating from the Haliburton Highlands in Ontario (FN05).
I enjoy the contests, especially the ones that endorse QRP.
(On Dec. 21, 2009 I secured the callsign VE3MO.)
2013/11/30 - just finished the final version of my 28 inch dia. magnetic loop which covers 80m thru 10m and is mounted on a camera tripod.It is intended as a portable / indoor antenna so if I have the good fortune to have a QSO with you and identify my
antenna as a "mag loop", that's what the parameters are.
I DO NOT have outgoing QSL service.
