This loop antenna is designed, built and tested right here in the USA. The element is so strong it's self supporting.
No need for upper or lower support rods or nylon string. Rover/mobile tested at or above highway speeds. Several are being used right now on 6 meter beacons through out the USA. If you get on the 6 meter band during vhf contests.
Chances are you have heard/worked someone with one of these loop antennas. It's the perfect add on antenna for those who have high gain directional yagis. Save on rotator wear during contests. This antenna can hear other stations calling cq in all directions.Great for local round table contacts and weekly checkin nets. Also works great on digital modes like FT4/FT8/MSK as well as CW and SSB. Can be mounted on a metal mast pipe or mounted right to one of your Rohn 25 tower legs.

(No surprise there due to fuel costs). You must have a real address. With everything costing more I will have to raise my prices soon. Due to the high price of gas, and I hand deliver these to the UPS store.
