GREAT UPGRADED UNIT
Time owned: 0 to 3 months
NEW MICRO-TUNE LOOP REVIEW.....BRAND NEW PRODUCT!
THIS IS A NEW PRODUCT JUST STARTED SHIPPING APRIL 1, 2014.
This NEW MICRO-TUNE is ALPHAS standard loop UPGRADED!
Received one of the first from the factory.
Alpha Micro-Tuned Loop comes complete with a 6' metal tri-pod of good quality.
Unit comes well packaged in its own nylon carrying bag. All parts neatly and professionally finished. Even includes some extra bolts and wing-nuts in case you loose some.
Setup takes approximately 15 minutes. Fit together nicely and forms a solid loop.
NOW FOR THE GOOD PART.....THE UNIT TUNES AT A REDUCED RATE. THAT IS...YOU CAN TUNE WITHOUT "MISSING" THE DIP IN THE SWR !
THE MICRO-TUNING OF THIS LOOP BLOWS ALL THE OTHERS AWAY!!!
To TUNE the MICRO-TUNE UNIT you simply move the tuning knob around slowly to find the "sweet spot" using the "SOUND" method or use an analyzer.
Watch the POINTER under the tuning knob move around and point to the underlying scale. When the correct SWR is established make note of the scale readings and the positing of the mark on the tuning knob itself.
These recorded pointer positions give you an EXACT setting for each frequency. You can pre-tune all the frequencies you work and then easily return to them.
Compared to the other guys the ALPHA MICRO-TUNE LOOP BEATS THEM ALL HANDS DOWN !!!!!
The efficacy of these loops is legendary and I believe that the ALPHA MICRO-TUNE LOOP is the best product out there.
I am VERY pleased with the product and the communication from Steve of ALPHA ANTENNAS....looking forward to an EYEBALL and a ham fest very soon.
Product is in production.
