Modifications to support the InnovAntenna DELPA 10-30

This page is UNDER DEVELPMENT until Len / K6ANP confirms the adapter setup


The DELPA 10-30 is a log periodic antenna that has a dual 1.75" square boom.   Each boom is used as a phase line so they must be insulated from the TiltPlate.  A number of modifications need to be made to mount this antenna on a TiltPlate.  The vendor supplied boom plates need to be modified, the TiltPlate needs to be modified and there are insulating spacers and washers used in the mounting.  Thanks to Len / K6ANP for providing the plates and a boom mockup that was used to develop the modifications.  There is no additional charge for this adapter and modifications. 

Note if getting the STACKABLE TiltPlate configuration the "bent boom" truss mast is recommended in order to get the truss cables behind the main mast.  In the non-stackable configuration a straight mast is used.
