Here Is The First Tried Today A Delta Loop With Howards, Own Designed Transformer.
This Covers 40m - 4m Tunes Up With A LOW Power Setting On The Radio Very Quickly
The Best Point Is It's Very Quiet With Noise, It Out PERFORMED My MQ1 Mini Beam On 20m-6m.
Howard says It Works Well At Just 4m Off The Ground, Which It Did 1st QSO on 20m as QRPP 1watt
To IK4LZH His Report Was 5/930 On My Receive, He Gave Me A 5/7 Strong Audio.
As You Will See In Pictures It Is 6m Off The Ground Had It Up To 12m Best Results From QTH Was At 8m.
But That Is With Trees & Houses All Around Which Are All Higher Than All My Antennas, Always A Struggle From Here.
Do A Search On The Net For " G4YKB Delta Loop Review " Not Seem A Review Below 5/5 !
Bought on 09/06/2019 see my logbook on QRZ for M6OXO from 09-19/06/2019 using a FT-817 max output 4.8watts.
My real interest was for the MAGIC BAND 6meters & it has been MAGIC with this DELTA LOOP my 1st ever used. Tonight 19/06/2019 worked CX3AAU & LU3MCJ on 4watts one was a new country
RSGBs 50Mhz contest with antenna 1.5m off the deck due to winds, winds were blowing over night antenna went over & sister ran over it Howard had the bits to get me up & running again for that 24Hr contest. Map of contacts which I worked with the DELTA LOOP our ran my MQ1 mini beam (6,10,12,15 & 20m coverage)
From a proper HAPPY customer who is buying another for my best mate who has the same problems as I had from my QTH.
This is the map of 6m contacts on 50Mhz Trophy contest June 2019
DELTA LOOP on low stand 1.5m tall.
DELTA LOOP UP AT 8m same results as being low to ground, these poles fit on the tow bar as well so a NO BRAINER for going portable any height to 6m (1.5m sections)
Out over the 27-28/07/2019 working 3 watts on FT-817 see log screen shots below of where this antenna worked please remember we are at the lowest point solar cycle cannot wait till
were back on the good times.
From top to number 74 is the IOTA countries I worked as QRP/P I don't get these distances on my beams, but on Howard's Vertical & Delta loop have had some fantastic results. My mate Tony 2E0UOG always said he could not hear the stations I was listening too & working so I got one of the delta loops for his birthday NOW he can hear & work them. Will review the long wire when I set it up, some work moving masts about & trees for a trim. 73
