The WWVB 60
kHz Low Noise Ferrite Loop Antenna is 24 " long and housed inside of the white
weatherproof PVC pipe.
Coaxial cable losses are so minute at 60 KHz, that the preamp if needed can be
located inside away from the elements, close to the power supply, with easy
should it ever need replacing.
When needed, I chose the ARR Advanced Receiver Research preamp to be supplied
with my antennas, because of it's reliability, and ability to handle strong
The preamplifier will require an 11 volt to 14 volt power supply at 40 milliamp
Here in Connecticut some 2000 miles distant Boulder Colorado and the WWVB
transmitter I can reliably hear the 60 kHz transmitter with just the antenna,
Listen to the audio of the antenna in
There is a DC
blocking capacitor in the output of the Antenna so it will not interfere with
any power being supplied by your receiver.
I have sold over 60 of these antennas to folks using Spectracom, Stanford
Research and several other brands of WWVB receiver. They are in homes and many
throughout the USA and the world.
Here are just a couple of comments I saved :
I received the WWVB antenna yesterday and got it into operation this afternoon.
Performance is outstanding.... Thanks very much. G. S
I plugged the antenna into my RX the other day and it worked really really
well! Locked to WWVB in just a few seconds, and I had time display in a minute
Fantastic :) R. R.
I can also build these antennas for other time standard frequencies. Any
questions please let me know.
This recording was made using only the
WWVB antenna and an Harris RF-590 receiver. The antenna was connected to the
receiver with 120
feet of RG-58/U, no preamp was used. The recording was made at noontime, on
August 8 2009 at my home in Northwest Connecticut.
