I decided to build a magnetic loop antenna that would cover the ham radio frequencies from around 20 to 30 Mhz so I could use it on portable with my Magnum 1012 hand held radio. This is what I come up with.

Since those bands are heating up now with the progress of the new sun spot cycle, this should be fun to use with the low power output of the radio and should make a better antenna than the duck antenna since it is a very high-q tuneable antenna. This antenna would also work well for the 11 meter CB band, great for anyone with very limited space for antennas or for portable operations.
