Buddipole vs AlexLoop Walkham
“Tried to do the most objective analysis on a comparison between the Buddipole and a AlexLoop Walkham antenna. I used a KX3 without the tuner activated with 10W output. Both antennas had roughly a 1.1 to 1.5:1 VSWR prior to hooking them up to the KX3. Take the analysis for what it’s worth. Recall the AlexLoop is directional as well while Buddipole is omnidirectional. Even though I am favoring the Alexloop in the video, I am not here to endorse any antenna. Feel free to experiment yourselves. But to me, being a SOTA activator, I’m thinking the AlexLoop is better suited due to the ease of setup and being able to use it from 10M-40M with ease. The only downside…. I wish the AlexLoop was built a little better. The plastic components used are cheap and I’m worried about the longevity of the antenna in the heat with consistent assembly and disassembly.
