Taking my cue from the coupling loop that feeds a
mag loop antenna, and sitting pretty much under
the 400kV pylon line, I wondered about the possibility
of using a loop to couple into the electricity grid and
so giving the equivalent of a Beverage at 137kHz?


In most places using someone else's property without permission is concidered
a bad thing to do.


How do you prevent your transmissions from passing through the
airspace of the countless millions whose permission you have not sought?


A very different thing than "using a loop to couple into the electricity grid".
