I have put up a Horizontal Delta Loop long enough for full wave at 80 meters. It has been up for almost a year. I did not tune it to the perfect length. I use it primarily at 20 meters and it works fine. I fed it at the center of one of the sides with ladder line to a balanced tuner. SWR is good. One thing I could never find is the best feed point. Is better to feed at a corner? Or the center as I did? And finally does this have any big impact on directivity.

Thanks
