Ciro Mazzoni Baby Loop
The smallest and most popular selling loop-antenna. Diameter is only 1m (ca. 38 inch). For this antenna space is not a problem: on the balcony, on the roof. The gapless frequency-range is 6,9 up to 29,7 MHz. It comes ready to use with mast clamp. ATU V2.0 is included.

The loop is made of aluminium. Even the smallest antenna has a 50 mm diameter of the tubing. Because of the large surface area there is less loss of gain. Both ends are welded on the socket, no screw connections so no contact resistance.
The tuning capacitor on our loops is not a simple variable capacitor but a big variable plate capacitor of aluminium with an air-dielectric. Both plates are also welded directly to the loop and indestructible on high power! The distance between the plates is 14 mm on the smallest antenna.
A weather resistant actuator opens or closes the loop and thus tunes the plate capacitor (SWR tuning).
The capacitance can be varied by a motor and can be adjusted to the best SWR via a control unit in your shack. In spite of their compact size, the antennas are resonant in a wide frequency-range.
The tuning of the antenna is done with an automated control unit. This controller is supplied with a 230V power supply. Operation is handled by a small numeric USB keyboard: Enter the desired frequency, wait a moment, ready. The antenna has tuned automatically and is ready to transmit after a short while. No difficult tuning process, no note taking, no complicated search for lowest SWR. The display shows frequency and SWR for immediate check, some LEDs signal the current state of the controller. The max. power load with the automatic controller is 250W! An english manual is included in shipment.
