HF Ham radio SkyLoop antenna 10 meter and 2.5 to 1 Talented Balun hang-n-go
You are looking at a very talented homebrew skyloop HF ham radio antenna called the AG6IF Talented Balun Loop It consists of: 16g 35 feet of insulated wire with split ring terminals on the ends. Custom designed and built 2.5 to 1 Balun with SO239 connector. The wire selection can be make more stealthy by using 18 ga wire. My permanent install uses 20 ga wire and it's nearly invisible. The setup has been tweeked and tuned to work on 10 meters (no tuner should be needed, depending on your rig), and using a tuner should get 15 and 20m, depending on your rig. This horizontal loop antenna should fit in a normal sized bedroom around the walls close to the ceiling, if you live in an antenna restricted area, but still want to work HF 10 meters. I have included a picture showing the SWR and Theta sweep for this antenna on 10m band 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 with horizontl loop antennas and I hope you can enjoy these too. 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 = 128 feet 80m = 250-260 feet 160m = 520-530 feet A note from a customer.
No question, just a thanks for this amazing loop! 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. This listing includes the loop wire for a 10m installation.
