Totally agree. i dont plan to run past 100w. 99.999% of the time on any Mag Loop

If you have a full head of thick wavy hair, I'm not sure I'd use it without remote tuning and about 25' away. If, on the other hand, you're older and it's already pretty thin up there I'd say go for it. (y)

J666, Are you running any power with that MLA? I just completed one and trying to decide if I want to put a vacuum variable on it. Since I live in an HOA. Oh yes I am going to run some power!
