HIGH POWER 10-40M MAGNETIC ALPHA LOOP ANTENNA +20W 40/60/80M BOOSTER CABLE
When we released the 2018 version of the Alpha Loop, we conservatively rated it at 30 watts. Extensive testing has enabled us to announce that all 2018 30W Alpha Loop antennas purchased after January 1, 2018 can accept the new power levels. Download your new 2018 User Guide HERE
. To remain safe on many levels from the significant power a 100 watt magnetic loop presents, there is no upgrade path that we have found for all Alpha Loop systems purchased before January 1, 2018.
The 2018 Alpha Loop with 'Easy Tune' 6:1 reduction drive is designed to operate from 10 through 40 meters where it is rated at 50W CW, 25W Digital, and between 98 to 60W PEP SSB per the following chart no matter where your Mic Gain is set.
* With a properly adjusted Mic Gain, this system will handle 100W PEP SSB. A properly adjusted Mic Gain is basically one that does not peak your meter when SSB is used.
Also included is the Booster Cable that enables you to use 20W PEP SSB on 40/60/80 Meters. The outer loop has over 21 feet in total length with the Booster Cable installed. This gives the Alpha Loop more surface area, which provides for greater skin effect that equals greater efficiency, than any manufactured loop on 40, 60, & 80 meters.
This 10-80 meter antenna is a small (transmitting) loop, so there are no taps on coils and no counterpoise wires needed. It has a built in tuner with a 6:1 reduction drive that allows you to easily match the antenna for transmit and receive from 7 MHz to 29.7 MHz or 3.5 MHz to 7 MHz when the Booster Cable is installed. High noise rejection is also one of the favorite features of this antenna for many operators in RFI prone environments.
