Thanks to the Passport to World Band Radio folks for posting the unfortunate news that Sony has discontinued its AN-LP1 active loop antenna for the American market.
I occasionally use a Degen DE31 active loop antenna, and visitors to my apartment will see it hanging in my living room window, wires dangling and primed for one of my several radios. I'd like to have a Sony antenna, in part because the AN-LP1 got a good review when compared with the DE31 from our friends at Radiointel.com.
