The CHA TD LITE (Tactical Dipole LITE) is a HF broadband antenna specially designed for portable HF communication where rapid deployment and simplicity of operation is essential but compactness is primordial.
The antenna will operate at all frequencies in the 1.8-54 MHz band without any adjustment with most modern external antenna tuners. No masts or guying are required.
The antenna will work successfully supported by trees, masts, the tops of vehicles or any convenient object or structure. The antenna works most effectively when elevated at a reasonable height, but if no support is available it will also radiate (with limited efficiency) when stretched out on the ground.
The radiation pattern of the antenna has a significant vertical component at all frequencies, making it ideal for NVIS applications.
The antenna system consists of:
- 1 X EMCOMM II TRANSFORMER
