Best First Amateur Ham Radio HF Antenna for New Operators. Post #1449.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/wG3oS-2QrFE.  The views expressed in this video are those of "DX Commander" unless otherwise stated.

A nice, laid back antenna tutorial from "DX Commander" as he describes his first amateur radio antenna--a delta loop mounted 7 meters (22.96 ft) above ground.  This antenna produced great results for him during his first years as a licensed radio amateur.

In this video, "DX Commander" shows you how to design, build, use, and test a simple delta loop antenna, which can cover several amateur radio bands with a balanced feedline and an antenna "tuner."  Delta loops are easy to make, exhibit low noise on receive, and can be designed to be "stealthy" in crowded neighborhoods.
