Review: Wellbrook ALA1530S+

This may be of interest to those interested in loop antennas. Wellbrook has out the new ALA1530S+. Guest contributor, Michael Stevenson, assembles his new Wellbrook ALA1530S+ P1 Active Receiving Antenna and puts it through its paces in this review.

Very nicely done! Two of the samples gave a stark difference in clarity between the loop and the wire antennas. Thanks for sharing Rob!
