“Whiskey” – Broadband NVIS Antenna

The Whiskey (US Pat. D706749), or “W” Antenna is an omni-directional horizontally polarized antenna, tailored for disaster and rapid deployment scenarios, offering robust performance in critical situations.

It is a reliable solution for High-Frequency Communications, designed to cover local, regional, and even continental (0-4000km) distances.

With its strong NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) capabilities, the “Whiskey” antenna ensures seamless communications over challenging mountainous or jungle terrains. Its full 2-30 Mhz spectrum broadband coverage eliminates the need for a tuner/coupler, making it ideal for ALE operations.

Enjoy the flexibility of this antenna, as it requires no radial ground plane or grounding. It perfectly suits ground/rooftop installations and mobile “on the move” field use.

Choose between transportable or permanent models, depending on your specific needs and deployment requirements.
