Cross Loop Antenna Kit
15-20 m + 40-60 m
The MFJ-57B PVC Cross Loop Antenna Kit includes a PVC Cross Mount that plugs into the top of the Loop Tuner for mounting 7-ft 10-gauge wire. A second, longer wire (28 ft in length) is also provided which can be attached to a bookshelf, curtain or other support. These two wire loops included in the MFJ-57B provide coverage from 20 - 10 Meters and 60 - 40 Meters.
The 7-ft wire becomes an insulated 10-gauge flexible loop with low resistance lugs providing coverage on 20, 17, and 15 Meters (14.000 - 21.450 MHz). The 7-ft wire works most efficiently on 15 Meters, but can be tuned down to 20 Meters with some efficiency loss depending on the loop shape, support, and environment.
The 28-ft wire becomes an insulated 10-gauge flexible loop with low resistance lugs that operates on 60 and 40 meters. This loop is most efficient on 40 Meters, but can be tuned lower in frequency to 60 Meters with some efficiency loss depending on the loop shape, support, and environment. It can be clipped to a bookshelf, curtain or any other support that will allow the most convenient placement.
The PVC Cross Mount consists of 5 sections of .65 M PVC tubing that connect together in seconds using a PVC Cross Connector.The loop can be attached to the PVC Cross Mount using the loop support bands provided on the PVC sections.
When assembled, the cross measures approximately 1.4 M across and has a maximum height of 1.4 M. When disassembled and bundled together, the PVC sections only take up .05 x .05 x .65 M of space.
