"Update: Unhooked the SW loop, hooked up the BC loop independently, and can tune in some BC stations above 1000 KC.  The strongest of these will close the AM tuning eye, and sounds pretty good.   I suspect that this is an antenna…"

"Thanks for the help, guys.  I found a little AM loop around the house that must have come with a Sony receiver I bought years back.  I've hooked up the SW and BC loops, but can't seem to tune either band in.  The magic eye…"

"Well, for a "vintage" solution, I'd try to locate a loop from a Laureate set. They turn up, there was one on ebay not too long ago (might still be out there). For a modern solution, I have several of…"

"Many thanks, Kent,  for the information.  This clarifies everything.   Would you have any recommendations for a BC loop?  There seem to be a lot of them out there."

Day Radebaugh replied to Day Radebaugh's discussion Newbie with an 800B
"Thanks very much.   It's clear how you connect the loop antenna for SW: plug the 4-prong connector into receptacle J7 on the back, and switch the receiver so that it recognizes the loop.   However, some of the literature talks about…"

"Ahh...I have an original of the Antenna Installation manual, I didn't realize it was scanned and in the folder. I will try very hard to get it scanned and uploaded tonight...or very soon.  Kent"

"Does anyone know how to install the loop antenna for the 800B?  The documentations says that instructions are provided with the antenna; I have the antenna, but not the instructions.  My understanding is that, in areas of reasonable signal…"

"Sounds like a good setup.  I think I can arrange this so that it's only about 20+" high.  That dimension will pass the Wifely Acceptance Factor test. Any suggestions on noisy volume control?  I had the unit on for about 3…"
