W6LVP Magnetic Loop Antenna Experimenters Kit. Increased man-made noise, the timing of the sunspot cycle, and other factors have conspired to make HF radio communications more challenging. Adding a power amplifier and increasing transmit power will help with a transmit signal. Reducing noise, RFI, QRN, and QRM during receive is more difficult.
Thousands of amateurs and SWLs worldwide have improved the quality of their radio reception using a receive-only amplified magnetic loop antenna from me or my competitors. Now those benefits are available to experimenters and DIY builders wanting to construct their own loop and support structure and add a power inserter bias-T plus 10 to 16 volt clean DC power source.
In addition for being the foundation for a complete magnetic loop antenna, the W6LVP preamp can also be used to replace a failed Wellbrook antenna preamp. Short pigtail wires with ring terminals are provided to replace the Wellbrook preamp. Outside use double-adhesive 3M foam tape is also provided to mount the replacement preamp to the top of an existing Wellbrook preamp. It worked great either when located on the balcony or inside our stateroom close to a big window.
Regarding these or any other questions. W6LVP magnetic loop antenna pream features and benefits.This product version includes only the preamp. A loop, bias-T power inserter, and clean 10 to 16 volt power source are required. A six-foot length of wire makes a great loop. If it is not stiff enough to support its own weight, put the preamp on the top and let gravity help.
Use any nonconductive material such as wood, bamboo, or PVC pipe to build a support structure for your antenna. The preamp is a low-noise, broadband amplifier covering 2200 (135 kHz) through 10 meters (30 MHz) with no tuning or adjustment. Banana jacks are provided for easy connection to a variety of loop materials and types. Short pigtail wires with ring terminals are also provided for direct Wellbrook preamp replacement.
The W6LVP magnetic loop preamp uses a BNC connector for its output which is the same type of connector used by the Wellbrook preamp. I have received many requests for suggestions on which type of coaxial cable to use to connect the loop to the power inserter or T/R switch.
When connecting a transmitter to an antenna, cable loss is very important. The item "W6LVP Magnetic Loop Antenna Preamp" is in sale since Monday, January 28, 2019.
