Delta RX Antenna used by FO0AAA
from Earl, K6SE on June 1, 2000
Several subcribers inquired about the Delta 160-meter receiving antenna used at FO0AAA.
It is a close relative of the Pennant and Flag antennas, which are ground-independent relatives of the Ewe. The Delta is a modification of the "delta-shaped Ewe loop" shown in figure 7-66 on page 7-51 of ON4UN's new Low-Band DXing book.

It is a delta l
