    Do you have any 80/75 meter loops?

    The SML-1000-1 with a 20 ft circumference loop and a 1/5 inner active loop works fine on 80 mts. Also doubling the loop works and reduces foot print. High Q. However efficiency is estimated 11%. Max 100 watts ssb. Good for listening....but to overcome noise on 80 mts band you may need more than 11 watts radiated. But who knows... try asking some QRP 80 mts fans. (I have not met one yet).

    I hope this help.

    All the best,

    Just want to say I am having a great time with the SML-500, no issues and working well on 17-40m. Thanks Roberto.

    What size would a 40M unit be, ideally I would like to move between 40 and 20, could I use the same antenna for both bands.

    Hello KX0OTK,

    The SML-500-1 is the best for that job. The Loop is 38 Inches diameter. The SML-1000-1 also does the trick, but its capacitor size allows you to experiment with larger loops on lower frequencies, like the 80M band.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Hello KX0OTK,

    Please go to www.pracomm.store for different models and shipping costs.
    You can also look for it on ebay. search: High power Magnetic Loop antenna.
    There are several models.

    Are these weatherproof, suitable for outdoor use all year around? This is certainly something I've been looking for as long as I can remotely tune it, set it up in a tree and forget it. 73s.

    Hello VE3GZB,

    The only waterproof model we have is the SML-500-1 OUTDOOR. But is manually tuned. You could certainly set it up and forget it. But for only one frequency. It has limited remote tuning capability via the AAT, to several bandwidths from the original tuned frequency. But that’s it as far as remote control.

    I hope this helps.
