CHA RXL PRO Description     Hide

The CHA RXL PRO is a new design high performance Low Frequency (LF), Medium Frequency (MF), and High Frequency (HF) receive-only loop antenna that can be permanently mounted outside on a mast or used on a camera tripod. It's broadband design is ideal for Software Defined Radios (SDRs), panadapters, shortwave listeners (SWLs), AM broadcast band listeners, and anybody wanting a small low noise receive-only antenna. 


Some of the key features of the CHA RXL PRO are: 

  • Wideband design – LF / MF / HF
  • Highly directional
  • Balanced input preamplifier to eliminate environmental noise and ground loops
  • Flexible mounting and power options
  • Stealthy – Navy gray loop fades into the background sky. DO NOT REFLECT LIGHT

Receive loops are very quiet and highly directional. With the built-in preamplifier, the CHA RXL PRO will enable clearer reception than many large horizontal wire or vertical antennas. The CHA RXL PRO covers all frequencies between 50.0 KHz and 30.0 MHz. Become a WSPR Reporting Station on the new 2200 and 630 meter bands and join the fun!
