|Amateur Wire Antennas|
The Chameleon EMCOMM II has been specially designed for backup emergency HF systems or permanent installations. The integral broadband impedance matching network (5:1 transformer) allows broadband antenna tuning. It is the perfect backup antenna for apartments, condominiums, homeowners associations, deed restrictions and CCRs (Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions), ARES, RACES, MARS, EMCOMM, NVIS, First Responders and especially for Emergency Preparedness. The system is waterproof. The antenna is 60 feet long and covers 6 to 160 meters. An external tuner is required.
The antenna will perform very well with a sloper or an inverted “V” configuration. For a NVIS configuration (40M – 80M) the antenna must be installed horizontally with the ground and elevated between 9’ and 12’ high.
The EMCOMM II does not require a ground-plane but will perform better with one. A ground terminal is available for that purpose. Power capacity is 500 watts SSB or 250 watts CW. SO-239 input.
