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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
