It is a good loop antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This loop antenna is very nice, good design, and works really well on my Sony ICF-2010 and IC-R75. The price is really attractive. Thank you Darrel.

Good portable antenna  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I live in an antenna restricted complex. This is my first mag loop antenna. This antenna is priced reasonably and has performed well even when used inside my home.I tune the antenna with my MFJ 259 meter for low SWR and it is good to go. I have made contacts on 20 meters with return reports a little lower than received reports. Tuning is touchy and requires patience. Antenna is easy, light weight, portable and mounted on my camera tripod, cost efficient. I am pleased to have purchased the 8020 CA and will get years of use out of this antenna.

Small, very easy to use  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Works very well for portable ops such as SOTA, hiking, etc. and is very light & easy to pack nearly anywhere. Works very well with my Yaesu FT-817nd and makes for a very nice and effective portable system.
