A 2/3 element Dual-Band Delta Loop Antenna for 17 and 12 meters from the Vortex Antenna Systems ‘Heavy Duty’ range.
Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock with a heavy duty boom. This antenna has 4 sections of aluminium tubing for the vertical section for 17m as standard, and 3 sections for the 12m loops. The antenna includes 6.35mm Diameter Wide Multiplate Element Brackets, H/Duty Polyamide Element Clamps and comes complete with M10 Stainless Hardware. Antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below).

The top wires on each loop are manufactured from copper-clad steel (in essence copper coated stainless steel) which is extremely strong and robust. The breaking strain of this alone is over 250kgs. This wire is the secured using marine-grade (316 stainless) hardware and Vortex’s unique “Cable Strain Relief Mechanism” which pretty well eliminates a top-wire failure.
