You are looking at a very talented homebrew skyloop HF ham radio antenna called the AG6IF Talented Balun and Loop It consists of. 16g 128 feet of insulated wire with split ring terminals on the ends. The current wire is GREEN and holds up alot better long term than the clear wire pictured. Custom designed and built 2.5 to 1 Balun with SO239 connector. The setup has been tweeked and tuned to work on 40 meters, 20 meters, 15 meters, and 10 meters (no tuner should be needed, depending on your rig), and 80m, 12m, 17m, and 6 meters using a tuner.I have included a picture showing the SWR and Theta sweep for this antenna from 6mhz to 30mhz, which was made with an AIM4170C analyzer. This antenna has been hung and tuned, and tested, and is ready for you to suspend from 3 trees, or 3 PVC pipes even, and add your own coax. If you are looking at this, you are probably a ham, therefore, check my QRZ page for some diagrams and other info. I have worked most of the world on this little setup, with the longest being Kenya at about 9,700 miles, using 40 watts.
I have been asked'why dont I sell these? The balun works excellent with alternate loops wires also.. 2m = 7 feet 10m = 35 feet 20m = 64 feet 40m = 127 feet 80m = 250 feet 160m = 508 feet A note from a customer here. No question, just a thanks for this amazing loop!I can t imagine HF without it anymore. The quality is the best and I just can t beat the performance with any product, price be damned. I hang it high in my trees in a 4corner configuration and it performs like a boss. Thanks again, keep up the great work, and I m about to take a peek at these tube cubes.
Another customer feedback here but for the 80 meter wire length (also available in my store). Just a note to say how much I love the AG6IF balun.The West side is at 45' high, the East side is a 12' high. I achieved WAC in the first week. I achieved WAS in less than one month. I have the loop tuned to the digital frequencies. My SWR readings are as follows.
80m 3.573 1.6. 40m 7.074 1.9. 20m 14.074 1.2. 17m 18.100 1.5. 15m 21.074 1.3.
12m 24.915 1.3. 10m 28.074 1.8. I used an 80 meter loop years ago fed with ladder line. I had good results, but had to. A tuner for other bands.
