Palstar AA30 Active Antennas are designed for the avid SWL who is unable to put up an outdoor antenna.
Utilizing the included whip antenna or a wire, AA30 preamplifier circuits provide from -10 to +15 dB of gain over a frequency range of 300 kHz to 30 MHz.
A varactor-tuned preselector with 6 band ranges prevents strong out-of-band signals from overloading the preamp. These units have a rear panel switch to select wall transformer input or an internal 9 V battery. As with all Palstar tuners, AA30s have their front panels and top covers powder coated.
At last, a stand-alone antenna unit that will improve your portable short wave or bring that table-top general coverage receiver to life! Even when your only choice is to use an indoor antenna whip or wire antenna, enhance your SWL and BC band reception with Palstar AA30 Active Antennas from DX Engineering!
