The Semi-Delta Antenna is an economical broadband base station antenna suitable for short to medium distance HF communications.

Codan's Semi-Delta Antenna supports operation over the frequency range of 2 to 14 MHz, and is capable of full duty cycle voice and data operation at the rated power levels. The antenna is an omni-directional antenna but has a good combination of high and low angle radiation to support both NVIS and longer distance HF communications. The broadband design of the antenna eliminates the need for a separate antenna tuner unit, the antenna is connected to the transceiver via a single coaxial cable. Manufactured using materials designed for long service life, the Semi-delta is built to survive in harsh outdoor environments.

The compact design of the antenna makes it suitable for installations that have limited space available.
