For sale;as new and in perfect working condition,a Cira Mazzoni Baby Loop antenna with control box (Original Version and in my view the best - i.e. no continual and annoying auto tuning).
The loop is only 1.0m diameter and covers continuos frequency range of 6.600Mhz to 29.800Mhz.
It has a high Q design which makes for an extremely efficient antenna and as such performs exceeding well. The loop is considered to be by far the best on the market , not only for performance, but for build quality too.
Power: The power handling of the loop is 450W up to 21Mhz and 1KW 22.00 to 29.800Mhz when connected with the tuner between the radio and amplifier. The auto tuner is capable of handling 200w , so for maximum power handling the tuner must be positioned on the input side of the amplifier.
Weight: The antenna weighs 26kg,so it is for collection only.
Antenna Location: For optimal performance the antenna should be between 5ft and 8.25ft from the ground, so is a really nice stealth antenna, not needing to be positioned high in the air, but even at this height with provide the performance of a much larger antenna.
Antenna Condition: Perfect condition and fully working - Hardly used, like new and never used outside.
Reason for Sale: I wanted to fit it in my loft but decided not to take it apart,and I don't think it would have fitted properly in my loft space correctly as i required - i.e. couldn't turn the antenna so counldn't utilise its directional performance.
Then it was going to be positioned out the front of my house,but it was to close to the hedge and also to close to the house as they say these loops should be at least 2/3m away from any objects to work.
The antenna is directional which is exceptionally useful, so for optimal use use with a rotator.
A major benefit of the antenna is the low noise making week stations easier to hear, and as the bandwidth is narrow, adjacent QRM is easily rejected.
Really reluctant sale! - Good luck all - you won't be disappointed with this one.
I would prefer £50 non returnable deposit, and the rest in cash on collection,
