Product Code – 15M2WWHEAVY

A 2 element Delta Loop for the 15m band from our ‘Heavy Duty’ range. The antenna is manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock with a heavy duty boom which is guaranteed to give you many years of excellent service.

When conditions begin to fade on the higher bands, here is your opportunity to get onto ’15’ with a great compact full size 15m beam antenna.

The Delta Loop is similar electrically to the ‘QUAD’ and the well known analogy of ‘First In and Last Out’ on the band rings very true with all Delta Loops. Having spoken to some well know antenna gurus we think it’s because although the polarity is ‘Horizontal’, the physical orientation of the loop means there is a certain amount of ‘Vertical Polarisation’ – this will help to reduce fading, especially when working ‘DX’.

The Vortex 15m Delta Loops have 4 sections of vertical tubing as standard. The antenna includes 6.35mm Diameter Wide Plate Element Brackets and Heavy Duty Polyamide Element Clamps manufactured by premium supplier ‘Stauff’ in Germany.

The antenna comes complete with M10 Stainless Hardware. Antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below).

VORTEX BOOM TO MAST PLATES
All VORTEX Antennas can be shipped WITHOUT any boom to mast mounting plates. Select this option from the drop down menu when purchasing. Other options include the choice of mounting plates and complete mounting solutions with U-Bolts and Brackets.
