radio. Using the ferrite rod does make a more compact and better looking
installation though. Type 33 material will work just fine. Just wrap about
ten turns around the rod. Connect each end of the coil to each side of the
loop. Experiment with the number of coils to get best results. It is rather
non critical. If this shows any interest, I will do a little experimentation
this weekend and put it up on the website. Anyone interested?
