G0KSC has again broken from tradition and introduced a new design, this time a 40m rotating dipole.
The Delta C-140 is under 12m wide and despite being small has an extremely high radiating efficiency which is reflected in the antennas SWR bandwidth, the whole 40m band in under 1.5:1 without an ATU.
So how has this been done? Many hams and antenna companies have made the mistake of installing low efficiency coils far too close to the dipole centre. The Delta C-140 uses a combination of capacity loading and large diameter coils moved out much further out either side of the dipole and this has given the antenna its unique wide bandwidth, high efficiency characteristics.
The Delta C-140 is substantially built with a centre section of some 50mm diameter and thus does not require any guying. Marine grade stainless steel is used throughout.
High efficiency means high power ratings too and 5KW is not a problem for this amazing antenna.
If you want to be heard and radiate most of what you put into your antenna on 40m, the Delta C-140 is your choice but be quick, wait times are already approaching 4 weeks!
The DELTA C-140 is a rugged 40m rotating dipole which is just 39′ (12m) wide
The Delta C-140 has a number of unique benefits. First it covers the whole 40m band without an ATU with an SWR of less than 1.6:1, this is not a characteristic that most ‘short’ dipoles provide. Next is the combination of capacity and coil loading.
Coil loading is a required aspect of many lower HF antennas but is not by any means efficient. Additionally, the closer any coils are to the dipole centre, the more inefficient they become (and the narrower their bandwidth). Capacity loading is the most efficient loading method but typically is not capable of reducing elements by more than a few percent.
Justin G0KSC has combined the use of high-efficient, wide-spaced coils and capacity loading to produce a 12m wide 40M rotating dipole with a radiating efficiency of just over 89% along with all-band coverage without the need for an ATU.
The capacity loading has allowed for the coils to be moved further out along the element lenghts to improve efficiency and bandwidth and the solid structure with fast taper ensures no guying is needed as the antenna can fully support its own weight.
The centre of the antenna is 50mm diameter tapering to 19mm at the capacity loaded side of each element and the capacity loading spokes are 6.4mm diameter solid rod.
The Delta C-140 has avoided the narrow-banded mistakes of other competative products by combining loading methods and shifting them further out on the element structure. This is combined within a very high quality mechanical package that uses marine grade stainless steel components throughout, provides a 40m dipole that is truely second to none.
