TECSUN AN-48x is an active loop antenna for enhancing shortwave (SW), medium wave (MW/AM) and longwave (LW) reception.

The AN-48x is supplied with adapters to connect the antenna to BNC and RCA sockets. This greatly simplifies hooking up the antenna to TECSUN receivers like S-2000 and S-8800, while it is just as easy to use with H-501, PL-990, PL-880 and the rest of the "PL"-family.

AN-48x also works with portable radios that do not have an external antenna jack!

  • Effective Frequency Range
  • Longwave: 120 ~ 400 kHz
  • Medium Wave (AM): 520 ~ 1700 kHz
  • Shortwave: 3500 ~ 20,000 kHz

Here is how you set it up:-

1) After connecting the antenna to the radio, tune the radio to the station you want to listen to.

2) Switch the antenna amplifier to the corresponding frequency band and turn on the control box.

3) The frequency and signal level controls can now be adjusted to enhance the signal.

Shortwave Operation

Connect the AN-48x to the external SW antenna socket of your radio, if available. If not available, use the supplied Black and Red connectors to connect the antenna with the telescopic antenna of your radio and a self-made ground wire.

Medium Wave (AM) & Long wave Operation

Connect the AN-48x to the external MW/LW antenna jack of your radio, if available. If not available, connect the control box to the included ferrite coupler and place it near the built-in MW antenna of your radio. For pocket sized radios, use the included base station to keep the ferrite coupler near the MW antenna more conveniently.
