Our radio set-up was donated to Morehead State University where Rollie Hatfield used the Magic Loop to explore the Jovian Storms of Jupiter. This is the JSS Magic Loop [Bob Sickels design] described in Sky and Telescope, Dec. 1989. Note 21.4 MHz blue BP filter and gold wideband pre-amp, both by Mini-Circuits. A sweet homemade antenna with signal enhancement.
