8.97kHz RX started

Today I made the loop antenna for the front-end of my 8.97kHz receiver. This consists of 24 turns on an 80cms square frame (the most I could wind with the 0.2mm PVC covered wire I had). Next stage is to resonate the loop and add some gain and selectivity so it can be used with a PC based SDR such as SpectrumLab or with a stand-alone direct conversion receiver.
