A lot of people have posted good reviews of the MLA 30 loop. It is not expensive and is great to experiment with.
Take a look on Facebook there are groups for it.
No had any experience with the cross country loop.

I'm commenting on an internet forum, why should your facts sway my opinion?

I have the loop and have been thoroughly underwhelmed with it to be honest. I bought it based on all the glowing reviews but it really doesn't live up to the hype in my opinion. From what I can see the tech minds YouTuber basically solicits free amateur radio gear in return for a review on the channel. Whilst he insists that the fact gets things for free doesn't affect his review I'm pretty sceptical to be honest, I mean if he gave someones gear a negative review they're unlikely to send him more free products in future. I think I've only actually seen one bad review on his channel. I guess it's a pretty good way to get yourself free stuff in addition to the advertising revenue from YouTube. There are also people in various forums etc that have recommended the loop but I'm not convinced they actually own it. Anyway if it's not too late mate I would suggest you don't buy it, if you have done already then sorry I didn't see this sooner.
