New Product Spotlight Videos: AlexLoop HamPack Portable Magnetic Loop Antenna System

October has arrived! Who’s ready for some POTA, SOTA, IOTA, and whatever other OTA you can think of? If you’re fans of operating in the great outdoors like we are, the thought of setting up your temporary station on a cool fall day and handling a mini-pileup from a park or peak is enough to get your heart racing at hyper speed. Throw in some apple cider and a dozen glazed donuts and, well, that’s just about as close to ham radio heaven as you can get.

If you’re looking for a convenient, all-in-one solution to transport your station and achieve proven results once you set up camp, check out the AlexLoop HamPack Portable Magnetic Loop Antenna System created by Alexandre Grimberg, PY1AHD, a ham with five decades of experience and a genuine passion for making portable ops as entertaining, hassle-free, and successful as possible.

Also ideal for space-restricted amateurs who prefer the comforts of operating from home, the stealthy HamPack system includes:

  • AlexLoop transceive QRP magnetic loop antenna for 40-1o meters (3 feet in diameter when assembled)
  • Full-size backpack featuring two reinforced pouches—one for accessories and the other to accommodate any size QRP rig
  • Upgraded tuner with a large, precisely printed scale that displays the range of frequencies. Its large knob, smooth-geared tuning control system, and AlexTune LED Indicator allow tuning of any frequency between 7 and 30 MHz in five seconds.
  • Maximum power handling of 25W PEP SSB, 10W FM/AM and Digital
  • 8-1/2 foot cable with BNC connector to connect to your transceiver

What do hams say?

Five Stars: “Have always loved the AlexLoop, but this new model is fantastic. The new tuning box provides more precise and easier tuning than the original and has a band indicator to let you know where you are at with a glance. The included backpack is beautiful and wonderfully designed to carry everything needed for going to the field. I am using the antenna for my base station, and even with the loop situated next to a window with aluminum blinds, performance is outstanding.”

Five Stars: “Very nice case. It is capable of holding my ICOM IC-705 along with the AC power supply in addition to all of the AlexLoop components.”
