The Sony AN-LP1 portable active antenna is just right for the traveller who wants maximum performance from their worldband radio. The flexible folding loop antenna is 19 inches (48 cm) when open, but folds down with a twist to a mere 7 inches (18 cm) and neatly fits in the supplied soft carrying case. A mounting clip and suction cup on the end of the loop allows easy placement in a variety of situations. The suction cup is especially useful for mounting the antenna to a window where reception will often be the best. A preselection knob selects operation from 3.85-21.95 MHz.
The AN-LP1 requires two AA cells (not supplied) for about 40 hours of use. The supplied cable connecting the loop to the AN-LP1 control box is 12 feet long. The supplied cable connecting the control box to the radio is 8 inches long. Output is to a 3.5 mm mini plug.
- The AN-LP1 derives power from the radio when connected to models ICF-SW1000T or ICF-SW7600G.
- The AN-LP1 is not recommended for use with models ICF-SW10, ICF-SW11 or ICF-SW77.
