    I use a Select-A-Tenna loop.

    I bought it at a local flea market years ago for one dollar!

    It makes a MASSIVE difference in AM reception.

    OK, so the question is, if a tuned loop has more gain, why would you want to bother with an untuned loop?

    Because you don't have to tune an untuned loop. If you just want to dial across the band and listen to different stations with a minimum of twiddling, the untuned loop is great.

    If you want to DX, then the tuned loop is naturally better.

    Sometimes you just need a flashlight... not a laser.
