Over the past few months, I've republished several videos and articles about magnetic loop antennas from the worldwide Amateur Radio community. Whether they be commercially made or homebrewed by radio amateurs, magnetic loops have allowed those with restrictive housing arrangements (HOAs and CC&Rs) to enjoy both HF and VHF/UHF radio operations again.  Magnetic Loop Antennas are easy to set up and break down, making them ideal for portable, emergency, and home use.

While I enjoy making my own HF antennas, I can see the need for a sturdy, easy to assemble antenna for those of us lacking the resources for antenna parts or have little skill in designing and building antennas.  This is where products, such as the W2LI Magnetic Loop Antenna, enter the antenna arena.

This antenna can offer a reasonably-priced, easy to assemble magnetic loop antenna for those of us who can't get on the air anyother way.

Here's a brief description of the antenna from the manufacturer:


Reviews: 3Average rating: 5.0/5MSRP: $$165
Description: The W2LI Magloop is an affordable, QRP antenna system 
designed for quick deployment, portable use, HOA/apartment 
dwellers, and excellent RX characteristics. It is compact, 
easily fitting into a backpack, and gives continuous 
transmitting coverage from 7 MHz through 14.350 MHz, 
covering 3 of the most popular ham bands. Magloop antennas 
are known for their relative efficiency when compared to 
their physical size, and are known for being "quiet" on 
receive compared to many other antennas, especially dipoles 
and verticals.

Accompanying the description are three reviews by WJ1R, N2LRB, and AC8UO. All of the reviews confirm the performance and ease of assembly of this magnetic loop antenna. 
You may want to consider the W2LI QRP Magnetic Loop Antenna if you want an easy and stealthy war to get on the air.
