Corner Fed Delta Loop

Postby wa4eqo » Mon May 09, 2011 2:56 pm

I have been trying out the new Delta Loop and have had good results so far. I have gotten 59's from Florida, Utah, Massachusetts, Croatia and the Isle of Man. Also a 58 from Belgium and a 57 from Italy and the British Virgin Islands. (Isle of Man And VP2 in British Virgin Islands were new DX entities for me.) It seems to be a lot quieter than the dipole too. Anyone interested can see the plans in the file section of the Yahoo group.

Add Sweden, Hungary, and Cameroon to DX worked on the new antenna. I could not get through to these stations on the dipole, but the loop worked.

At this rate, you'll have DXCC in no time. Congratulations on your success on this very nice antenna. :D Your first experiments are always the best !

Antenna is still working very well. I tried to answer a CQ the other day on the dipole, but no go even though I was the only one answering. Switched to the loop and one call later got a 57 from Austria and a new country was in the log. Also worked the Netherlands Antilles for a new one. I should have about 60 countries when and if all the cards come in.

Last night I worked Australia (57)and New Zealand (59)on the loop antenna. Aside from Hawaii, those are my first QSOs to Oceania.
