A MLA is a convenient, lightweight antenna, which can be deployed quickly and is ideal for use in places where HOA restrictions make full size wire antennas impossible, or where there just is not enough room to erect a conventional antenna. Many operators favor the MLA for field day and SOTA operations. When designed and constructed properly, a MLA can perform as well or even better than a dipole antenna. A MLA is a very simple antenna. It is just an inductor formed by a wire loop and capacitor tuned to resonance. How well this antenna works depends on several factors: The PreciseLOOP HG-1 MLA is optimized for portable operations featuring higher gain and greater power handling capability (45W PEP), a precision 6:1 reduction dial with calibrated dial marking, a high surface area, a 38″ LMR600 radiation loop, copper tube induction loop and a twelve foot 50 ohm feed line. It comes in a convenient premium nylon bag.
Includes the HG-1 Remote Tuner
The HG-1 Remote Loop Tuner is a compact, easy-to-use remote tuner for a Magnetic Loop Antenna (MLA). It is designed specifically as a retrofit for the popular . Now you can place your at a remote location, such as the top of your RV, away from obstructions, for better radiation efficiency and less interference. The controller features an efficient, low noise, pulse width modulated, motor controller. The drive motor RPM Rate is adjustable over a very wide range. This allows for precise tuning and low SWR. A custom designed current limiter detects the end of the tuning range and alerts the operator when the tuning limit is reached by a “stall” indicator. In addition, a fail-safe slip clutch mechanism protects the motor and tuning capacitor as well. The HG-1 Tuner is ready to go. It includes the remote controller, a cable and the motor mount which attaches to the exiting tuner case.
Low Loss Tuner
The tuner is the heart of any MLA. The capacitor must be very low loss with high Q. It must have sufficiently high voltage rating to handle the designed power. The features a custom dual stator high Q air variable capacitor driven by a 6:1 reduction dial along with calibrated dial markings.
80M-1 80 meter resonator included
The 80M-1 plugs into the tuner’s accessory plug. It uses a high Q capacitor tuned to the 80 Meter band. It provides superior tuning selectivity and excellent receiver sensitivity and allows transmitting at 10W PEP.
CMB-300 Common Mode Balum
The CMB-300 1:1 Common Mode Balun was specially designed for Magnetic Loop Antennas (MLA) and portable dipole such as a the Buddy Pole (R). It features a common mode rejection ratio (CMR) of 30dB, providing excellent rejection of common mode current. It uses 50ohm Bifilar wound coax construction using a low loss toroid giving very low losses – better than .1dB. The connectors are BNC for easy connection to most portable antennas. Maximum power is 300W. when used with the the CMB-300 1:1 Common Mode Balun increases the efficiency and reduces losses on the HF bands. It operates from 1,8 to 30 MHz at a power level up to 300 watts.
MLA-1 Precision Tripod Included
The specially made tripod is sturdy yet compact and light weight. It sets up quickly. The included MLA 25mm Tripod Adaptor makes setup easy. Simply plug the antenna mast into the adaptor and you are on the air. MLA 25mm Tripod Adaptor Included. It fits the standard 25mm tripod fitting. It was custom designed and manufactured to connect quickly to the MLA-1 tripod. The inside diameter snugly fits the loop mast for fast deployment.
High Q low ESR Tuning Capacitor
The components are mounted on a high quality PCB. This insures ideal impedance match, low losses, and repeatability. Included is an accessory port on the bottom of the case. Each component is HIPOT tested to ensure you get constant and reliable performance.
The COMBO package includes everything
It includes the PreciseLOOP HG-1 MLA, the Remote tuner, Controller, all cables, 80 meter resonator, tripod and adaptor, CMB-300 Common Mode Balum, custom padded carrying bag and even the 9V battery.
