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.
