They would not have made it if it were useless.
See our Three Penny Radio project.

It will also work fine in the Ten Minute Radio project.
You just wrap a turn of wire around it to mak the small loop.

You will need a variable capacitor of the right value to match
your coil. Our capacitors are matched to our coils.
