Best First Amateur Ham Radio HF Antenna for new operators

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  This is post 2139   in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Most radio amateurs remember their first antenna.  Mine was an ungainly 100-ft/30.48 m piece of speaker wire running into a homebrew L "tuner".  I managed to work many DX contacts with this less-than optimum random wire.  Of course, my old Heathkit HW-101 was very forgiving in those days.

In this video, Callum (M0MCX) reminisces about his first HF antenna-a beautiful delta loop mounted about 7 m (23.96 ft) above ground.

Callum takes you back to that day and shows you how to design, build, and test this versatile HF antenna.  An excellent tutorial for both experienced and newly-licensed ham radio operators.
