15-40 Metres Super Hi-Q Loop Antenna
MFJ's tiny 36 inch diameter loop antenna lets you operate 15 through 40 Metres continuously -- including the WARC bands!
Ideal for limited space -- apartments, small lots, motor homes, attics, or mobile homes.
Enjoy both DX and local contacts mounted vertically. Get both low angle radiation for excellent DX and high angle radiation for local, close-in contacts. Handles 150 Watts.
Super easy-to-use! Only MFJ's super remote control has Auto Band Selection. It auto-tunes to the desired band, then beeps to let you know. No control cable is needed.
Fast/Slow tune buttons and built-in two range Cross-Needle SWR/Wattmeter lets you quickly tune to your exact frequency.
All welded construction, no mechanical joints, welded butterfly capacitor with no rotating contacts, large 1.050 inch diameter round radiator -- not a lossy thin flat - strip -- gives you highest possible efficiency.
Each plate in MFJ's tuning capacitor is welded for low loss and polished to prevent high voltage arcing, welded to the radiator, has nylon bearing, anti-backlash mechanism, limit switches, continuous no-step DC motor -- gives smooth precision tuning.
Heavy duty thick ABS plastic housing has ultraviolet inhibitor protection.
Perfect for apartment
The perfect HF solution for an apartment dweller. I have this set up on a wood table in my 2nd bedroom by the window and I have made contacts as far away as Japan with FT8 and many South American contacts driving less than 40W. The manual tuning is an acquired skill and I have read other reviewers having quality control issues with MFJ products but I have had mine 4 months now have had no problems. I am really happy with it so far. It seems to be best in the 12-15m and 30m-40m bands, with the SWR in the 20m climbing up a bit but still easily to below 1.5. The high Q means you will be retuning the antenna frequently if you are not staying in one band but after a few times it becomes second nature. I would definitely not leave it outside in the elements for any extended period though, the device is not sealed against the elements or against nesting insects. Overall well worth the money in my opinion if you are space challenged like in a high-rise.
