Hello OUTDOOR STEALTH LOOPers!
Our idea of THE STEALTH LOOP antenna was born, because we learned from todays issues, to live our passion as we would like to do. Our aim was to build a magnetic loop for those who have to hide their antenna away from the eyes of home owner associations, neighbors or other likeable, sympathetic contemporaries ;-)
We didn’t consider the antenna owners to put it in the garden or on the balcony and let it rest. The concept of the STEALTH LOOP is to be a kind of portable antenna, ready for use when you need it, hide it away after QRT. In reality most of you use it protected on balconies, stables, attics a.s.o. But in very, very rare cases we learned, that Hams used it for longer outside operation, which can result in issues with rain drops between the capacitor plates.
No reason to worry about that! We have great news for you!
With immediate effect we are offering for those of you, using THE STEALTH LOOP in adverse weather conditions with heavy rain, a solution to protect the capacitor..
A tailored solution in form of a real strong 5mm/ ~ 0.2in cast acrylic, transparent but dark, tinted cap, covering fully the open capacitor for extreme outdoor use, especially made for the STEALTH LOOP, is available at our distributors worldwide as an accessory part.
Only 4 screws have to be unscrewed, position the STEALTH CAP over the capacitor plates and fix it with the same screws again. Holes are prepared. Done!
Have a look to the cap,
