To tune a vertically polarized delta loop between CW and SSB, it is only necessary to add a single piece of wire to the center point of the bottom leg. The free end should be supported off the ground and the wire run at right angles horizontally away from the bottom leg.

Feed should be 1/4 wavelength from the apex. Long Haul DX performance will be very good due to low angle of radiation.
