In that case, the inductance of the antenna has to resonate directly with the varactor diode on the chip. Taking into account stray capacitance in the connecting wires and the loop itself, design for about 240 uH. This calculator should get you close.   It gives more accurate results for large air-loop coils than the one called "Professor Coyle."
