How To Build A Delta Loop Antenna. Post 1699.

One of my favorite HF antennas is the classic delta loop.  You can feed the antenna with 50 ohm coaxial cable for single band use or connect the antenna to an antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner") with balanced feeders for multiband HF operation.

In this video, Hiram Vazquez does an excellent job of explaining the theory, design, construction, and use of the delta loop antenna.  The delta loop has some gain, receives well, takes up little space, and is fairly cheap to make.  You can mount the delta loop horizontally, vertically, or in a sloper configuration.
