WIMO Expert opinion

You benefit from the flexibility of the antenna thanks to its compact size, which can easily fit anywhere. Thanks to the SMA connector, you enjoy a simple and versatile connection option for common receivers (lots of SDR!). You receive a broad spectrum of frequencies, from long wave to medium wave and short wave, which opens up a wide range of possible uses.
The passive design may not offer the same amplification performance as active models, but you can compensate for this with the correct positioning. The antenna is designed for reception, so transmitter functions are not supported.

The 'Youloop' is a passive receiving antenna, which is constructed according to the principle of the Möbius loop. Here, the inner and outer conductors of a coaxial cable are interchanged at one point, resulting in a long conductor in several turns. For long wavelengths, this construction is electrically symmetrical, which compensates for interference on the long bands and makes the antenna very low-noise. To maintain this electrical symmetry over a wider frequency range and to make it independent of the feed line, a balun is used at the feed point.

The Airspy Youloop is constructed from three very light semi-rigid cables with SMA connectors. The cable pieces can be rolled up to very small dimensions, so the antenna can be easily transported in the side pocket of a suitcase or similar. The antenna can be set up in a few seconds, it can be hung in the window with a suction cup or a string. The Youloop is not weatherproof, so if you want to use the antenna outdoors for a long time, you must seal the joints with self-welding tape.

The Youloop antenna can be used for a wide frequency range from long wave to medium wave and short wave. In principle, all types of receivers are suitable, but very low-noise receivers such as the Airspy HF+ Discovery are particularly suitable.


More informations on the working principle of the Youloop can be found in the Airspy-newsgroup at groups.io. (in english).
