The delta loop antenna can be configured to favor horizontal or vertical polarization.  If you feed the antenna with twin lead into a balanced antenna "tuner", you will get multi-band HF capability.

If you want a quiet, versatile HF antenna, please consider a wire delta loop. In this video from Callum (M0MCX), we get a thorough look at the delta loop antenna with all of its benefits and disadvantages.

I will switch the YouTube ones one as soon as they they have been created by the big machine in the sky! 00:00 Intro 00:
