“We’re setting up for Winter Field Day and testing out the Chameleon Emcomm III Portable HF Antenna.”
CHAMELEON ANTENNA EMCOMM-III Portable HF Antenna is specially designed for short to long range portable and man-pack HF communications. The EMCOMM III Portable antenna is ideal for hiking, backpacking, and both tent and Recreational Vehicle (RV) camping. It is also highly suitable for military, government agencies, non- governmental organizations (NGOs), Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS), Civil Air Patrol (CAP), Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) / Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES), Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN), and amateur radio operators (hams) involved in field communication and disaster preparedness.
The EMCOMM III Portable antenna is configurable to facilitate Near-Vertical Incident Sky wave (NVIS) communication and will support most Automatic Link Establishment (ALE), frequency-hopping, and spread- spectrum modes and operations. An antenna tuner or coupler may be required for in some instances. The EMCOMM III Portable antenna can be deployed by the operator in the field in less than 15 minutes, using almost any available support, with no masts or guying required.
The EMCOMM III Portable antenna is comprised of a matching transformer, a 73 foot antenna wire on a line winder, and a 25 foot counterpoise – making a highly portable and effective HF antenna system.
