Chameleon 2.0 Military Whip Extension, The CHA MIL EXT 2.0 whip has been designed to offer maximum portability and performance for those already using the portable CHA MIL 2.0 whip for man-pack antenna system.
This collapsible antenna extension needs to be used with the CHA MIL 2.0 to create a 18’2” long portable antenna. When combined with any HYBRID series antenna bases (like the CHA HYBRID-MICRO from the CHA MPAS 2.0) the CHA MIL EXT 2.0 will operate at all frequencies in the 1.8-54 MHz band without any adjustment with most modern external antenna tuners.
This four 28” sections of ¾” diameter of aluminum alloy tubing is designed for portable HF communication where rapid deployment and simplicity of operation is essential but compactness is primordial.
The aluminum tubing walls of the CHA MIL 2.0 is thicker and stiffer than the version 1.0. Also, the joint inserts and the main tubing are made of a single piece thus reducing the losses.
This is an EXCELLENT add-on for the CHA MIL 2.0
Specifications: Mounting Configuration: 3/8-24 Thread
Length Collapsed: 28.1"
Length Extended: 105.5"
The antenna system consists of:
1 X CHA MIL EXT 2.0
IT'S IMPORTANT TO WATERPROOF THE UNIT BEFORE PERMANENT INSTALLATION
Use the Ideal NOALOX 4 oz. Anti-Oxidant Compound to improve the efficiency of aluminum conductor connections. This compound provides additional inner-strand and inner-conductor current paths.
Anti-oxidant and anti-seizing compound improves efficiency and service life of aluminum electrical applications
Suspended zinc particles penetrate and cut aluminum oxide
Provides additional inner-strand and inner-conductor current paths for improved conductivity and cooler connections
Reduces galling and seizing on aluminum conduit joints to promote good ground continuity
For use with pressure type wire connectors including screw-on, tap, service entrance and split-bolt.
