Testimonials

Wanted to tell you what a great product you sell. I have a lot of AM loop antennas, commercial and homemade. Yours is the easiest to use and most portable loop antenna I have. My homemade, amplified 6-foot box loop is more selective, but not easy transport and is unwieldy. I often go on the road and DX AM radio stations, but have to leave the box loop at home. Your antenna has become an indispensable part of my mobile DX toolbox.

I've seen your listings for years, and decided to take the plunge. Best radio/DX investment I've made in a long time.

Thank you again for your product!

Hi Paul, finally got the 2GB 873KHz aerial up this afternoon. Had a bit of rain around for a few days. The reception is outstanding almost completely clear. A few little crackles if you listen very closely, probably a storm somewhere. See the attached photo of the install. Mounted the loop close to the satellite dish and all is good, it is probably 600mm from the top of it and at least 1200mm from the metal roof. I faced the aerial edge-on in a south westerly position to get the best reception, (the satellite dish is facing north)

Thanks very much, the Mother-in-law is very very happy !

Paul - The antenna (A-LOOP-LWT150-500 Longwave Loop) arrived here today--Friday--exactly one week in transit. I set it up tonight trying it out with a Sony ICF-2010, a Grundig YB-400PE and a Roberts Revival radio. Within the rather narrow time window of a darkness path between my location, 150 miles inland from the Atlantic coast of the northeastern U.S. and Europe, I was able to receive France Inter out of Allouis on 162 KHz on all three receivers using your antenna. Without your antenna there was nothing there. With it, I had a quite listenable signal for a little less than an hour before sunrise in France absorbed it. I should underline that this is the summer here in the northern hemisphere and I am--again--150 miles from the coast! The antenna pulled in the signal through all of that, plus the usual summertime static.

Bravo on a great product.

Best regards,
John F, Clifton Park, NY

We were troubled with virtually zero AM reception, in an area of the NSW Central Coast. I looked on the web for Antenna help & instantly found PK's Loop antennas. I completed the Reception Questionnaire and was most impressed by an almost immediate return phone call from Paul to further discuss the reception problem. This was followed up by a full quotation in writing which recommended the Outdoor Remote Tuned Loop, C-LOOP-HDLRAM for our Denon Tuner.

Ordering & delivery was so simple ---clear written instructions made installation easy & within minutes of completion we had clear reception of 6 AM broadcasts.

I recently bought a Newstar DR111 radio to receive DRM broadcasts on SW, I was using a well known Chinese, low cost loop aerial, but decided I wanted something better. I ordered the SW620 from PKs Loops, it came quickly and well packed to the UK from Australia, at a good price. It has enabled me to pick up more stations, and get reliable signals on marginal stations, it is really easy to tune, and rotate for the best signal and noise rejection, I found using a 12V battery really improves the upper frequencies, but normally I just use the 9V battery. I can receive all the 80% of the DRM broadcasts for Europe, hearing stereo on SW! takes some getting used to. I would happily recommend this aerial for DRM and AM reception ! Picture attached...

Many thanks

Hi Paul, I tried your custom built Ham Radio C-FILTER-5P-NOTCH-1620KHz 5Pole 60dB Notch Filter for 1620KHz on various receivers. I could not see any drop in sensitivity on the 160m band, but wow the clarity I'm now getting across that band is incredible. No more interference spots and breakthrough from the local AM transmitter on 1620KHz (PK Edit/Addition; Transmitter is 900 metres away from customer premises). I have been suffering from so much crap/intermods and blocking from that local am station it is now amazing to see what is possible without that influence. The Long wave band is about the same because of the high quality ferrite loading coil I use on the antenna for that band but again I see no change in sensitivity so it looks like the filter will always remain in the antenna path for receiving at least. Thanks again Paul, your filter is a valuable tool for my shack!

Hi all at PK's, I just had to write to tell you how stunned we were with the performance of the A-LOOP-TAM we recently purchased from you. I must admit to being slightly sceptical as to how it would perform but desperate enough to give it a try as we are some 350km north from ABC 531Khz in Dalwallinu, (200Km NE of Perth); usually reasonable reception after sundown but nothing at daytime ,you can imagine my delight as i tuned the antenna at noon and received reception so clear and strong that i had to turn the radio volume down to about one third volume. A bit of experimenting and we were receiving 6 stations, some from the coast which is over 400 km distant. At night I noticed we didnt get the stations fading in and out and the volume knob turned barely on. I anticipate saving on radio batteries because of this. A very big thank you and please feel free to use this correspondence as you see fit.

Hi Paul, just wanted to say thanks for sending the new radio, it's working fantastically with the loop antenna. I have moved it to lots of different places around the house and now have great reception, we are listening to our favourite talkback and gardening shows.

Thank you again...................

Paul, this is just to let you know that we are very satisfied with the antenna ( A-Loop-TAM Tunable AM Loop ) that you suggested would be suitable in our Cardiff (Newcastle area ) location.

The reception of Sydney radio station 2GB has greatly improved and our sanity has been restored.

Thanks for your assistance.

Paul, you have saved my marriage!

Let me explain: Bindoon is hilly and has lot of "black" spots; no free-to-air TV and Wireless networks are barely usable. Our beautiful house is perfect for this location; double brick, 3 meter veranda all around, open hearth fireplace, satellite TV and .... a tin roof. My dear wife can't stand much of today's TV and habitually retires early each night to a good book or tunes in to the ABC on AM (FM can't get through anyway). But AM broadcasts were rarely clear and often downright unintelligible. I tried a heap of solutions; expensive radios, external aerial and even satellite radio. There were issues with all these, from awkward to horribly expensive. Then by good fortune, my Google search popped up with your product, the Tunable AM Loop ( A-LOOP-TAM ). My marriage has never been on sounder footing. Your product is all it claims to be and I can't thank enough the genius that made it possible.

Regards,

John R, Bindoon Western Australia


Hi Paul, just a few lines to express my utmost appreciation for your advice on the best way to pick up 846 Canberra and others.........

The reception of this radio ( Sangean PR-D7 ) is brilliant in this building, compared to at least 5 others I have tried. It is as you said a little clearer with battery power. I will get some rechargeable batteries later. By all accounts it is a very bad building to get stuff clear, but this radio is fantastic to be able to deliver acceptable sound. The loop antenna ( A-LOOP-MTAM ) just gives it that edge.

At home and away from this area, we found the following: We could listen to 702 Sydney, clear as a bell, something we have never been able to receive!!! We can receive 12 AM stations, 25 FM stations!!! Truly astonishing as I didn't even know that many FM stations came across our area! The tone and sound quality is amazing from such a small package with a 3" speaker-truly a fantastic radio. Stunning. Nice design looks great, small enough to take to the footy with great features.

Once again thank you for your help and expert advice; we will be telling others about this terrific radio and your service.

Very happy are we!

Bill and Sandra T, Canberra ACT


Boy, is it nice to buy something that actually works as advertised. As we are all aware, most products are advertised with smoke and mirrors, i.e A whole lot of hype and very little to offer in reality.

Your Longwave Loop has me totally amazed, it performs better than I ever dreamed a loop would work. I have used active antenna's and long wires in the past (25+ years) and nothing has come close to your product, I don't buy cheap junk, for an example I use Sony active antennas, also eavesdropper antenna's, I thought these were good performers, not anymore.

Now I can keep the wife happy by not having long wires etc. strung all around the yard, the loops take up no space at all.

Paul, I am in the process of building a new home, but when it's finished, I will be talking to you about your remote mounted loops. Just for your information my Radios are, Icom ic r75 (fully modded), Sony SW7600gr and a Sony ICF7600

Dear Paul, you have won my wife Helen's heart, she listened to both 972 kHz and dear old 3LO on 774 kHz last night when we got home from Adelaide. Excellent reception!

Demonstrated to her the loops magic on the other SA stations and this morning on 594 kHz from Horsham, our companion for many hours on our travels in to Victoria, particularly to Melbourne and Wodonga to visit family.

A sincere thank you and congratulations on your workmanship, you should be justly proud of your product. Happy New Year and thanks again !

Hi Paul, I have been using the Passive Longwave loop antenna (A-LOOP-LWT190-550) now for two solid weeks and I couldn't be happier with its performance. I'm using it coupled inductively to a Sangean ATS-909 portable receiver.

Every night I discover several new beacons, some of them 2000 km away and one night I copied BBC4 on 198 KHz, over 5500 km! And this is in summer, with continuous lightning static !

The tuning knob is easy to spin with one finger to bring in a nice narrow passband and the whole
unit spins easily on a smooth table. The nulls are good and sharp.

The loop covers 190 to 550 KHz, as advertised. It's compact and portable (about 14 inches in
diameter) and ruggedly built.

Thanks for a great product!

Peter Lanting, Toronto, Ontario, Canada


Dear Paul I received the antenna on Friday and got all the gear installed over the weekend, and it's the best AM reception I've ever had in this house, brilliant!

Regards,

David M, Wanniassa ACT


Dear Paul, just a note to let you know that the loop arrived safely on Wednesday 9 May and I am thrilled with it! I have used it with several portable radios and boom boxes; it works great with all of them!

I use it during the daytime hours to listen to a station 100 km south of Seattle on 680 kHz that plays vintage jazz and swing music; it comes in clear as a bell, as strongly as a local station!

At night, I clearly hear stations from all over the western U.S. and western Canada! If you need a testimonial, please feel free to use any of these remarks.

Thanks again,

Keith Beesley Seattle WA USA


Thank you so much for the speed of your service and for the product which I gratefully received today. It has made such a difference to my radio enjoyment already.

My friend was so impressed with your product she asked me to place an order which I have just completed.

Thank you once again,

John W, Mugee New South Wales


Received the Loop and I am very very happy, I can hear Greek Radio on 1683KHz and all these Solomon Isle DX and NZ AM Stations like 1035KHz

Regards,

Blair Smith, Rockhampton Queensland


Dear Paul, Just wanted to let you know I received the loops & am 1000% satisfied. I am particularly impressed with the AMBC loop. I am listening to WKBW from Buffalo NY over 800 miles on 1520. I am sure you get alot of raves but as a listener of 32 years, I am very happy to have finally found a usable loop that didn't cost me my first born !

Dear Paul, the SW-to-MW converter is working well. I used it with my car radio and was able to listen to 2310 kHz from Alice Springs here in Melbourne! Great performance and well made !

Thanks,
