Hi, I agree, it is pure junk. It worked well on shortwave but totally useless on mediumwave. BNC connections was bad. When turning the loop, lots of interference. Money in the garbagebox

that thing is pure junk. I have one laying here. Overloads the radio, very sensitive to "touch and get closer to the loop" motion. Idea is good, but bad constuction. I would not buy it anymore - for no price.

Hi Phil
Many thanks for that, I didn’t know of this group but will certainly have a look. I’ve gone ahead and ordered one of these from that Banggood site and will wait and see if I get stung with any additional payments. 

I’d already looked at the video you linked, and it was one of the sources that had convinced me to try it. At this point in time I’m not heavily into AM DXing so the poorer result from the lower frequencies doesn’t bother me. 

I very much appreciate your input 
Drifter

You might get some decent comments from the experts if you posted the question over here:

A bunch of very knowledgeable loop fanatics over there.
Not trying to blow you off, but it is where I go first for loop antenna questions.

OH... and I found this:

From this review it doesn't sound like it would be that great for AM DX.

Okay Paul, I’ll see if I can do that without disclosing my address, in the meantime this link gives some insight:
