October 21, 2017: 6:00 – 7:45 UTC
Rig: K3 / 100W, Varta LA60 (60 Ah) AGM- battery, Begali „DXpedition“ paddle
Ant: Delta Loop on 7m GRP Pole
29 CW QSOs on 20m – 7 S2S- QSOs but none with JA/ VK/ ZL this time.
A delta loop antenna is not particularly suitable for SOTA. It requires much more space than a vertical and the set-up is more complicated.
Nevertheless I’d like to show this design here because sometimes space (and weight) don’t matter and a low take off angle is welcome. One possible scenario could be the VK/ZL/JA <> EU S2S event.
