Chameleon Antenna High Frequency (HF) Modular Portable Antenna, System (CHA MPAS). The CHA MPAS is designed to be the most versatile, high-performance, and rugged portable/man packable HF antenna available using the “LEGO® BLOCK” approach, as described by Survival Tech Nord. The core components of the antenna system, see plate (1), are: a CHA HYBRID-MICRO portable base, 60 feet of wire, a 10’8” military-style collapsible whip antenna (CHA MIL WHIP), and a clamp-style antenna mount (CHA JAW MOUNT). Available system options (sold separately) include, a 6’6” collapsible extension (CHA MIL EXT), rugged counterpoise kit, and coaxial cable assembly with integrated Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) choke. The components of the CHA MPAS provide a continuum of portability and performance to meet your communications requirements. Plate 1. MPAS Core Components. The integral broadband impedance matching, network transformer of the CHA HYBRID-MICRO, allows broadband antenna tuning. The antenna will operate from 1.8 - 54 MHz (including 160m – 6m, amateur bands) without any adjustment with a wide, range antenna tuner (the shortest configuration has limited performance below 3.5 MHz). The CHA MPAS is perfect for Emergency Preparedness and Survival communication. It is also the antenna for hams that enjoy camping, hiking, biking, or other types of outdoor recreation which require, communication gear to be both effective and highly portable. The CHA MPAS is configurable to facilitate Near-Vertical Incident Skywave (NVIS) communication and is totally waterproof. The CHA MPAS requires a wide-range antenna tuner or coupler. Antennas built by Chameleon Antenna, are versatile, dependable, stealthy, and built to last. Please read this operator’s manual so that you may maximize the utility you obtain from your CHA MPAS. HF Propagation | HF radio provides relatively inexpensive and reliable local, regional, national, and international voice and data.
The Modular Portable Antenna System is a concept allowing the radio operator to configure and deploy the antenna system in a variety of configurations. Some of the possible deployment configurations: • Vertical • Horizontal • Sloper • Inverted “V” • Inverted “L” • NVIS • Balcony • Vehicle (Stationary) • Man-Pack Specifications: 1 X CHA MIL 1 X CHA HYBRID-MICRO 1 X CHA JAWMOUNT The components included in the kit are the “core components” to get you on air. Many operators are fine with this, while some build, or piece together a custom kit, unique to his operating style, or Comms requirements.
