Alexloop Portable Antenna for 40-10m
The Alexloop is a small and lightweight portable Loop Antenna for 7 to 30MHz, ideally suited for radio amateurs with space restrictions or for your vacation and hiking trip. The ultra lightweight loop is assembled without any tools within seconds and can be tuned with the supplied tuner to a perfect match. The internal S-Meter of your radio helps in tuning this antenna.
As any loop antenna the Alexloop also is very narrow banded and immune to signals outside the passband, it acts like a pre-selector. The antenna is completely independent from radials or ground situation and can be installed anywhere. For example while camping - sit on your camping chair, tune the antenna with the left hand and operate the radio with the right hand.
All parts including a 2.6m long coax cable are pre-assembled and are shipped in a small and cleverly constructed padded bag. Weight of the antenna less than 900g. The cable is equipped with a BNC connector so you can start operating right away. The robust bag is only 41x27cm in size, but has enough space to accommodate a FT-817 as well as a camera tripod for the antenna, too!

The AlexTune is a small display that can be used to tune a magnetic loop. At resonance (best SWR) the LED is brightest, so you can tune precisely without watching a SWR meter. The Alextune is mounted with a metal bracket on one of the PL connectors on the antenna loop. It measures the field of the antenna which is strongest in resonance. This principle works with every loop antenna, not only with the Alexloop. The clamp fits every common PL plug, so the AlexTune can also be used with other loop antennas that use coaxial cables as radiators. The brightness of the LED varies depending on the band, with the lower bands it shines also in the resonance case somewhat weaker than on the higher bands.
