How To Build A Delta Loop Antenna. Post #1467.

In this well-made video tutorial, Hiram Vazquez takes us step by step through the design, construction, and use of a Delta Loop HF Antenna.  As Hiram explains, delta loop antennas are fairly quiet on receive, show a bit of gain over a dipole antenna (about 3dB), take up little space, and are cheap to build.  Delta Loops can be both mono band and multiband, depending on how you feed the antenna.  If you use balanced feed line (300 ohm tv twin lead, 450 ohm ladder line, or home made 600 ohm balanced line) with a balanced "tuner", multiband use is possible. If you can use only one HF antenna on your property, the delta loop may be what you're looking for.
