I had a delta loop for 30 M up for awhile and it was flat, all about 30 ft above ground, hung over tree branches, (just over a quarter wave high).
I fed it at one corner with a 75 ohm Q section then RG8x into the house.
It was designed to compliment the low angle Butternut Vertical I had with a high angle launch for eastern North America. I had a much stronger signal, with the loop, in the target area, than the vertical could give me. I was uning a MFJ9030 at the time, my main rig (TS520) had no WARC bands.
I worked a lot of western states and Europe with the vertical with 5 Watts.
If you want abetter DX ant than a vertical, on 30M, get the loop up so the lowest part is 1/2 wave above ground !. This is why nobody uses cubical quads below 14 MHz !
