Simple Ham Radio Antennas--How To Build A Delta Loop Antenna. Post #858.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uUVMaRFMV4. The Delta Loop is one of my favorite antennas.  It's simple, easy to build, and inexpensive. Plus, the delta loop can give you a modest amount of gain (about 3 dB).  Multi-band use is possible if you use ladder line, television twin lead. or homebrewed balanced feed line connected to a 4:1 balun and fed into your antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") with a short length of 50 ohm coaxial cable. This video from Hiram Vazquez covers most of the steps needed to make this highly versatile HF antenna.
