The new MegActiv MA305FT is an evolution of the popular MegActiv MA305. In addition to small improvements in electronics, the new MegActiv MA305FT has been equipped with a switchable FM band-stop filter. Thus, disturbing radiation from the FM band between 88 and 108 MHz can be easily minimized.
- Wide frequency range 9kHz – 300MHz
- Dual Power Supply: 5,5V – 15V
- Selectable FM band stop filter
- Small dimensions
- Ideal for traveling, at home or DX-Camps
- IP3:>typ. +30dBm / IP2:>typ. +50dBm
- Enlarged and flexible 200mm radiating element
This low noise active antenna, which is produced according to the highest standards, covers the frequency range between 9kHz and 300MHz. With a radiating element of only 22 cm / 8,66 inch it can be erected inconspicuously. It can be powered with 5-15 V DC (max.40mA) and alternatively with the supplied Dual Power unit CPI1000DP via USB.
Flexible FM-band stop filter
Based on the well proven Megactive platform, an additional low pass filter and a FM-band stop filter were integrated which can be activated or deactivated easily with a jumper. In case of FM-interferences, the FM bandstop filter can be activated with a jumper and so FM signals between 88 MHz and 108 MHz will be attenuated by 20 – 30 dB.
Dual power supply
Standard delivery with DualPower power unit CPI1000DP (external power supply and USB-operation possible). The MegActiv MA305 can be operated by two different kinds of power sources. It can be powered either by a conventional plug power supply or via USB. Powering via USB has the advantage that no external power supply is needed and that the antenna can be operated independently and noise-free with a separate USB PowerBank. The supply voltage range is 5 – 15V DC (10mA max) and thus the antenna is also well suited for portable use.
Integrated double overvoltage protection of the active antenna part
Integrated double surge protection of the active components: Coarse protection by gas discharge tubes with 60V firing voltage with max. pulse leakage current 1kA (8/20µs) with additional integrated ESD fine protection of max. 2kV.

Quote from the review by FenuRadio: (translated)
“The NTi MegActiv is a small receiving antenna with excellent reception performance. The construction proved to be unproblematic, similar to the Boni-Whip. From VLF up on the FM band, the MegActiv receives very well despite their small size. When properly setup it provides a nearly unbeatable signal / noise ratio!”
