Default Magnetic receiving loop theory

Is this a near-field
/ far-field thing?

Hi
Not really
But most statements about magnétic loops are false because
the ground is much too close to the antenna in terms of wavelenght.
And average ground has little magnetic effect and big electric one.
Making a VHF/FM magnetic loop is a good idea to start
understanding how it really works.
It is very cheap and small too :-)
