Vortex 2 Element Lightweight Delta Takes Hurricane Strength Winds With Ease
During the winter period here in the UK and Ireland, some areas have experienced some very severe weather and storms and in particular hurricane strength winds. One of our users in Ireland said that the Vortex 2 Element lightweight Delta Loop (10m version) survived a 109mph wind battering. This is testiment to our build quality. We pride ourselves in the use of premium quality hardware and components. One review said the 'Build quality was reminiscent of Aircraft Quality Engineering and that the Antenna would most likely outlast the Operator'.

These are the building blocks of antennas that you can be proud of. All of our systems are hand-built with care, passion and pride using Vortex bespoke 6082-T6 and AA6082-T6 aluminium element stock and initially honed using EZNEC modelling software. All systems are then individually ‘Dry Assembled’ and analysed using a VNA and measurements taken from multiple field strength points.

We don’t use off the shelf general purpose alloys such as 6063 and 6060 as some manufacturers do. This stock is not good for building a premium systems and flexes too easily. They are NOT classed as construction grade alloys. Our bespoke AA6082-T6 stock is about 15% stronger than the US 6061-T6 Aircraft quality stock. When it’s about build quality - look no further than VORTEX – no one else comes close.

The main Vortex line-up now includes Yagis, Delta Loops, Dipoles and Linear Loaded Systems with variants including Wideband and OWA Arrays, together with a new range of verticals including our new 'QUASAR Q82'.

Our mainstay is the 'Heavy Duty' series, but some higher frequency models are also available as 'Lightweight' or even 'Superlightweight' versions which are ideal for portable or field day use but are also robust enough for a permanent home installation.

We specialise in designing bespoke systems for individual requirements including systems to MIL Specification or for use in extreme environments. Vortex are also suppliers to HM Government.

Vortex raise the bar again with the new
'QUASAR Q82' high performance 10/11m vertical

Independant tests from users say the Vortex Quasar Q82 is now the benchmark for 10/11m vertical antennas. Against the Sirio V4000, the Q82 was constantly 2 'S' units up and the build quality is about the best you'll get worldwide - a reputation that we've built upon since starting in 2010.
