Re: One-off special...Indoor HF Active Loop antenna

I started to design a small rotator from a BBQ spit rotator. Amazon has them at around £5. The battery is integral and I think it could be done without much ado. It is just the business end, no controller or direction indicator. Should be a great little project for someone with the time…whatever that is.

With regards to rotators... The only one I could find that was a TV type and cheaper was on a well known internet auction site. It had to come from the US, but the company had signed up for the scheme where the postage covers all the p&p, customs and vat duty etc so you didn't have the performance getting it into the country. It was a Channel Master 9521. Think it was around £142 all in compared to silly cash for ham brands, although not as good as the £80 you used to be able to pay.

An HF active antenna that manages a good s/n ratio at LF would be greatly appreciated.
