PKs Loops Model A-LOOP-TAM AM Loop Antenna review.
« on: January 19, 2018, 2049 UTC »
Thus far, I've made my own loop antennas, but being an ex-apartment dweller, I like checking out how these do out there, and Radio Jay Allen does that here,    https://radiojayallen.com/pks-loops-a-loop-tam-am-loop-antenna/
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

Looks like you could make a better performer out of a plastic milk crate, some wire, and an old BCB tuner cap (if you can find one) and save a bit of money (about $65 and then shipping from Oz) -- but I digress (just me being snarky I guess)

But it's cool that someone is making these loops for the MW crowd, especially when the only other mass marketed one (at least that I am aware of) is the AN100. Select-a-tennas aren't made anymore. 

Power to the guy making them. I hope he does well. It sounds like these antennas are good performers and tough, as well.

MW is the new SW. Enjoy it while it's still here. :-)
