"... a beautiful piece of engineering... The loop not only looks good, it performs well." Jonathan Marks, World Radio TV Handbook

Please Note: We have discontinued manufacturing the Kiwa MW Loop Antenna due to the unavailability of PVC pipe at our new location.

The Kiwa MW Air-Core Loop Antenna provides the radio enthusiast with a unique antenna for improved AM broadcast band reception and DX'ing. The unique design of the construction and electronics includes the following high performance features:

Rear panel layout

Two receivers can be connected to Outputs 1 & 2 simultaneously. The output connectors mate with a PL-259 coax connector. Power is normally supplied by a modular transformer or it may be powered by battery when AC power is not available.

Front panel layout

The attenuator adjusts the output level to the receiver(s).
The regeneration control performs as a variable bandwidth control. As the regeneration is increased, the bandwidth narrows and the gain increases. The regeneration control provides typicaly up to 75% bandwidth reduction as it is adjusted from the minimum to maximum position. Typical bandwidth characteristics are shown below when measured with a center frequency of 580 kHz.

The main tuning control tunes from 530 to 1700 kHz.

The fine tuning control augments the main tuning control for precise tuning of the antenna.

The loop antenna is made of the finest materials. The control surface is housed in a heavy duty steel chassis. Connection of the antenna to the control surface is by way of an eight foot control cable. The antenna uses teflon for all pivot points and the antenna is made entirely of non-metallic parts to prevent interaction with the loop antenna element. The antenna is hand crafted in the USA and carries a one year warranty.

Dimensions: Overall height 18 inches / 45 cm
Weight: 16 pounds / 7.25 kg

"After about a week of using your air-core MW loop antenna, I can truthfully say that it is the best loop antenna I have ever had! It out performs every ferrite-core loop I've ever used. The nulls I can get are fantastic... Your are to be congratulated." R. Frcho, Ohio
