quantum qx loop v.2.0 vs. fsl loop

Sunday, December 24 2017


Hi Bill (and Neil),

Of course I agree with Neil.

The Drake R8A has a 50 ohm impedance antenna connector which isn't really compatible with the FSL's inductively coupled boosting system. The FSL antennas work very well with any radio having a loopstick (portables of any size) but not with table receivers looking for a broadband antenna with 50 ohm impedance.
