Three-Element Delta Loop Beam For Two Metres (145mHz)

This small and extremely light antenna has surprising gain for its size and may be suitable for those without the real estate or pocket for a huge Yagi. It could be mounted in most loft spaces and still rotated easily, but was designed for mounting on a lightweight mast such as the popular SOTA pole.

My design as it stands needs some refining for my purposes as I will describe later but it works very well.
