Sponsor: Dordt College engineering department

The goal of the induction loop project was to provide high-fidelity hearing assistance to hearing impaired members of Covenant Christian Reformed Church in Sioux Center, Iowa. This goal was achieved using an amplifier-driven induction loop antenna mounted beneath the sanctuary floor, allowing those with telecoil-compatible hearing aids to listen to the service without excessive background noise.
