Can anyone direct to us a shop that carries these items for building a K0FF low 
band 160M loop we found onm e-ham??
160M Version
All you need is 20’(160) or 10’ (80) of the 3/4” aluminum CATV cable, an 
aluminum conduit TEE* with waterproof gasketed coverplate*, a 9:1 Matching 
transformer*, tuning capacitor and padders*,coax fitting of your choice*, 
shrink tubing*, a short piece of 1” PVC waterpipe-slit (gap stiffner), a 
plastic plug* and rust proof hardware*. The mounting “mast” is a 2 foot piece 
of 1/2” or larger waterpipe, with 1 foot driven into the ground, or a one foot 
piece clamped into a ground mounted rotor. Remember, the SLOOP is intended for 
receive only applications, never transmit into it.  We are looking at putting a 
copule of low band antennas out back and thought this would be a good antenna 
to use as a reference- We can get the pipe, this question refers to the 
electronic parts. Will be mounting on a small rotor in the back yard- making 
160M our band choice for the low band season-
