The CHA SKYLOOP is a 250' (14 gauge) full wave loop antenna cut for 80M. A yard of at least 60' X 60' will be required to install and support the antenna properly.
With the help of an antenna tuner the CHA SKYLOOP will cover all the bands between 80M and 6M included. To match the loop to the coax cable a high power 4:1 air core balun (1000W CW) has been inserted in a waterproof container at the feeding point of the antenna.
Even if the antenna can be installed at a minimum of 10' above ground the antenna should be ideally installed at least 30' to 40' off the ground for maximum performance. The antenna will be suspended by four evenly spaced support points. The main advantages of a sky loop are the reduced background noise and a better gain over a dipole.
A minimum coax length of 25' of RG-8X (or better) is recommended.
