Hi guys,
I live in the Sierra-Nevada mountains. I enjoy building BC and SW band tube regens and crystal radios as a hobby. I hardly get any stations with my long wire antenna because of my location. Additionally, I Have a nice Palstar SW receiver that is connected to a Pixel Tech mag loop antenna where I get excellent BC and SW reception. Question: Is there a way to couple a mag loop antenna to a regen or crystal radio by some inductive coupling method or device that I can either make or buy? Any advice would be appreciated.

I have a 2 tube regen. The tank coil has an antenna winding. I simply connect my mag-loop directly to this. Works great. Tuned mag-loop antennas work so well.

Michael,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll attach the mag antenna output to the antenna winding.
