What are you asking?

If you can do this?

With what radio?

https://www.amazon.com/DEGEN-Receiver-M ... B00AT5AMVI

https://www.amazon.com/Sony-Portable-Ac ... B00009VT84

IMHO you will need to know what the gain is of the amp as opposed to the area of the antenna. A small loop area with a high gain amp can exceed the effectiveness of a large loop with a low gain amp.

The only proof is to buy the both, try them, send back the one you don't like base on the one radio it is used with... It's Amazon...

YMMV

I think he's saying he did do this and is recommending it as a low cost alternative. Hey, I could be wrong! :?
