Shock-Resistant PL-360 7.5" Loopstick System


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,
 
For those hesitant to mount a large external plug-in loopstick on their Tecsun PL-360 because of weight considerations, the system pictured below provides a perfect solution.
 
A 3/8" I.D. rubber air hose (glued to the loopstick frame) fits securely around the whip antenna tip as the 7.5" upgrade loopstick is plugged into the antenna jack, providing a weight-sharing system that also protects the loopstick from sudden sideway bumps. With rubber shock mounts also used to attach the 7.5" loopstick to the frame, the ferrite bar is well protected from sudden bumps coming from other directions.
 
The attached photo has been uploaded to the PL-360 photo album on the Ultralightdx photo site, for those unable to view it in this email.
