DELTA Loop. Post #1089.

Here's another simple antenna that can be used at your home station or in portable or emergency operations, such as the upcoming 2017 ARRL Field Day on 24-25 June 2017.  Simon (M0YKS/2E0HTS) uses a simple 20 meter delta loop, vertically polarized, along with an automatic antenna "tuner" to cover the 20 m, 17 m, 15 m, 12 m, and 10 meter amateur radio bands. Simon says he also uses the antenna on 40 meters.  I see his daughter, Martha, is serving as backup operator at Simon's station.  A nice, pleasant, "laid back" video that gets the message across simply and accurately.  I've used delta loops for several years. They are easy to build and fairly quiet.
