This is post 2293 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Gil of the "RadioPreppers.com" website for this two-part tutorial on designing, building, testing, and using a 30M delta loop antenna.

In part one, Gil shows us the materials and construction practices needed to bring this antenna to life.  He also describes the mistakes he made in making the antenna--something he corrects in part 2.  The video takes us step-by-step through this interesting antenna project.

Here are some of Gil's observations from part 1:

"Since my 6m Delta Loop seems to work pretty well I decided to build one for the 30m band to be used with my Spiderbeam 12m mast. Unfortunately I cut it too short. The balun works well. I need to try a quarter wave of 75 Ohm coax instead, just for testing... Note that fed a one lower corner polarisation is vertical. Stay tuned for part two...
