- My favourite HF band is 20m
- Delta-loops for 20m are manageable in size
- Loops are quiet on receive
- Vertically polarized loops are well suited for DX
My choise of shape will be version D because if offers a low radiation angle, which is necessary for DX. The sketch below shows how I plan to build the antenna:
Delta-loop antenna for 20m.
A delta-loop antenna with ATU was described by WB8IMY and published in QST May 2002: One Stealthy Delta. This article is worth studying if you consider constructing a loop antenna.
