Amazing Cheap Multiband Delta-Loop Horizontal Antenna


 

Here's another great antenna idea from Callum (M0MCX).

In this video, Callum designs, builds, tests, and uses an inexpensive horizontal delta loop antenna to cover the 40m, 20m, 15m, and 20m Amateur Radio Bands.

Other than the cost of some wire and a 4:1 balun, the antenna can be built with items you may already have in your ham shack.

I've built several delta-loops over the years, and wasn't disappointed in the result I received.  Callum's instructions are easy to understand.

Here are some thoughts from Callum (M0MCX):

I am about to install a Multi-Band loop which will be resonant on 40m, 20m, 15m and 10m. It needs a 4:1 balun - but other than this balun, this is cheap to build and is well within the possibilities of many small ham radio stations. It will give me some TX and RX gain on the higher bands and it will also be a lovely TX / RX antenna during the day for NVIS 40m.
