Hello
M0PLK i think is the delta loop antenna you are referring to?
The delta loop works very well indeed i used one on a field day last year with a friend who purchased the said antenna.The loop is well made both sturdy and strong and still sits in his back garden with no wind damage or breaks, its up at about 400 ft asl in the open.The performance of the delta loop was as expected with a very low and quite noise floor enabling us to work many low power and qrp stations with absolute ease,we did not have a rotator but turned the loop manually due to its directive properties.
During the field day we made many contacts with the loop and always received good signal reports we included in the log that day north and south america with many local europe stations.
Hope this helps,
Regards
Steve

Hi there. I use a M0plk design antenna. Because i have the facilities for working with metal, I made the base myself and instead of the telescopic aluminium rods I used fishing rods with the cable feed through. 4:1 transformer and 450 ladder line. It is a very good and efficient antenna, if you can rotate it ..even better. What I have noticed transmits with " the side" on 6,10,12 m and with the loop on 15-20. equal perfoprmance with the windom on 30, poorer on 40, not efficient at all on 80.
it is well worth building/ buying one. And my survived the hurricane we had last week. Works very well close to the ground, from 6 feet up. mine is at 30feet. good luck, Bogdan
