A 3 element Delta Loop Antenna for the 10m band from our Lightweight’ range. Following many enquiries we have now launched our new 3 element lightweight Delta Loop. For quite a while we have been aware of a gap for a performance antenna that breaks the 9.5dbi forward gain barrier. Some of our customers seem to be using 3 or 4 element Yagis around the 7.5-8.5dbi mark and want a performance increase but also have space limitations.

This Delta gives you the next step up the ladder but it’s not too heavy and does not require a large boom length. Our stock of normal lightweight boom material is strong, but would not be sufficient for an extra third element. This has now been resolved with further development on the boom sections. For a boom length of only 4.4m you now get an antenna with 9.66dbi forward gain and just under 30db front to back ratio at band center.

Also being lightweight it would also make an ideal portable/field day antenna and can be erected by one person. The antenna has been built purely with forward gain in mind, so the operating bandwidth is around 700Khz .

The system is manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock, this antenna is an excellent balance between weight and strength.

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.
