The magnetic AC losses of monofilament Sr0.6K0.4Fe2As2/Ag tapes are measured in the temperature range between 20 K and 30 K both in perpendicular and parallel field. The loss, measured by the standard magnetization technique, is determined from the area of the hysteresis loop using a vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) in a cyclic field of amplitude up to 7 T. The results in perpendicular field are compared to that of the parallel-field loss and theoretical calculation of magnetization loss at various temperatures. There is a reasonable agreement between the theoretical model and the experimental results even in high field. The magnetic critical current density ( Jc) of the tape, obtained by the magnetic hysteresis measurements M(H), are investigated in two field directions and in the temperature range from 5 K to 30 K. The comparison between the magnetic Jc in both field directions and the transport Jc of the tape are also done at various temperatures and fields. The anisotropy of Jc (Γ=Jc ab/Jc c) is very small.
