How can I make my own Ferrite Patch Cord for the TERK?

You can get the same effect by just wrapping a wire a few turns around the
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?

I would like to know how to make a coupler ferrite rod
patch cord, so I can hook it up to the TERK AM Advantage and the Homemade
Longwave/MW loop.
for a directional LW/MW system. Covering 530 to 1710 and the other 220 to
519kHz.   Why buy one
commercially and pay alot of shipping?  It would be
a great homebrew project.

What kind of ferrite material do I need and how
many turns of wire will be best?
Magnet etc?   Could I use 33 material?

Help me.   Thanks.
