LA30 Rotating Loopstick Antenna

LA30 Rotating Loopstick Antenna

Product Details

The new Palstar LA30 Ferrite Loopstick Antenna is designed for the avid LF, MW, and Tropical Band SW listener. The LA30 is a rotating loopstick antenna using active electronics to give high selectivity & gain. The tunable pre-selector ensures best possible weak signal reception and interference rejection.

The LA30 comes standard with a Medium wave Loopstick that covers 410 kHz to 2050 kHz. Two optional loopsticks are available: a Long wave version that covers 110 kHz to 550 kHz, and a Tropical Band version that covers 1480 kHz to 7500 kHz.

A hi-Q pre-selector eliminates interference from powerful nearby stations. A +15 dB pre-amplifier pulls in weak stations, while a 15 dB attenuator prevents overload when listening to strong stations. Rear switch can select either wall transformer input or a 9V internal AA battery pack.

Add 11 Ga. (.090" thick) iridite-treated aluminum metalwork and durable powder coated finish on the front panel and top cover, and you have the LA30.
