(COMBO) SML-1000-1 "Ghost" Edition + 33 Ft low loss 50 Ohm Coaxial Cable SML-1000-1 "Ghost" Edition 10,12,15,17,20,40,60 Meter Bands High Power Experimental Multiband Magnetic Loop Antenna (Important: requires an Automatic Antenna Tuner such as an MFJ or LDG. NOT INCLUDED) Easily handles 100 Watts CW, 400 Watts Max SSB. Antenna Video Review by David Casler KE0OG: CLICK HERE FOR SML-1000-1 ANTENNA VIDEO REVIEW TUNING PROCESS: Tuning the antenna for Dx is straight forward and is as follows:1.- Turn OFF the auto-tuner and choose the desired frequency on the Transceiver.2.- Turn on the volume on the transceiver and turn over the capacitor on the antenna and find the spot where maximum noise is heard.3.- Turn on the auto tuner and proceed to auto tune the antenna. This process usually results in a 1:1 swr or very close to it.After this tuning process, when you search for other stations to Dx, you do not need to perform auto tune until you are ready to transmit on a chosen frequency. Once the frequency is chosen, you press auto tune and get your SWR down to 1:1 or very close to it. Then transmit. (If the auto tune does not tune satisfactorily after a frequency change, go back to No.1 above and repeat.) Features: I.-38 Inch Copper loop for 10Mts to 60 Mts II.-Stainless Steel Threaded rods, nuts and washers III.-Translucent enclosed variable air core capacitor IV.- Easy to convert Loop Up with a 32" user provided 3/4 inch PVC pipe Customer feedback: 5/6/2019 Great Mag Loop, had it put together in about 45 minutes and was transmitting in about an hour. When tuning, I had to increase the inductance on my tuner then I was able to get the SWR to 1.0.1. I was able to make several QSO’s in NY, NJ, SC and AL at 25 Watts. I just wanted to play with it before I bumped it up to 100 watts. I was getting reports of 4-7 and 5-7’s at just 25 watts. I installed it in my attic above the garage so I figured when I move the wife’s car to the driveway I will get even better results. Equipment used: FT-991A radio MFJ-993 AT Thank you, Bart SE Indiana 5/4/2018 First, I wanted to thank you for a fine product. I'm in a space-constrained environment (no outdoor antennas). Your antenna is exceeding my expectations. The assembly could not have been simpler. With regards to performance, my observation is that your antenna , far outperforms a low attic dipole for sub 10MHz DX .For 40-30m DX your antenna outperforms the attic dipole.Mike,Moon Twp. PA 7/16/2018 Arrived early. Set it up on 30m and ran WSPR @ 5w for awhile last evening.Here are the results from North Idaho:(See contacts picture above)SO, I suspect this will work for what I have in mind for it.THANK YOU. I’ll be taking this to the club meeting to show ’n tell. Michael,North Idaho 9/13/17 "Had the chance to try the antenna on Saturday. Attempted to make 30 contacts into pile-ups for contests. 100 watts and I made contact with every one on the first attempt. All contacts were less than 1000 miles but all were 59's" Chris Indianas
