- Enlarged and flexible 200mm radiating element
This noise-free antenna, which is produced according to the highest standards, covers the frequency range between 9kHz and 300MHz. With a radiating element of only 22 cm / 8,66 inch it can be erected inconspicuously. It can be powered with 5-15 V DC (max.40mA) and alternatively with the supplied Dual Power unit CPI1000DP via USB.
Dual power supply
Standard delivery with DualPower power unit CPI1000DP (external power supply and USB-operation possible). The MegActiv MA305 can be operated by two different kinds of power sources. It can be powered either by a conventional plug power supply or via USB. Powering via USB has the advantage that no external power supply is needed and that the antenna can be operated independently and noise-free with a separate USB PowerBank. The supply voltage range is 5 – 15V DC (10mA max) and thus the antenna is also well suited for portable use.
Integrated double overvoltage protection of the active antenna part
Integrated double surge protection of the active components: Coarse protection by gas discharge tubes with 60V firing voltage with max. pulse leakage current 1kA (8/20µs) with additional integrated ESD fine protection of max. 2kV.
Fernando from Fenu-Radio.ch did the first comparison Test in Mai 2015 and released this test on his Page in German: www.fenu-radio.ch.
Quote from the review by FenuRadio: (translated)
“The NTi MegActiv is a small receiving antenna with excellent reception performance. The construction proved to be unproblematic, similar to the Boni-Whip. From VLF up on the FM band, the MegActiv receives very well despite their small size. When properly setup it provides a nearly unbeatable signal / noise ratio!”
