The Whiskey (US Pat. D706749), or “W” antenna is designed as a local, regional to continental (0-4000km) coverage antenna intended for High Frequency Communications. It is an 0mni-directional horizontally polarized system. Typical use is for disaster and rapid deployment scenarios. Its strong NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) capabilities allow for communications over mountainous/jungle terrain and its full 2-30 Mhz spectrum broadband coverage makes it an excellent antenna for ALE operations without the need for a tuner/coupler. Radial ground plane or grounding is not required making the antenna ideal for ground/rooftop installations and mobile “on the move” field use. The “Whiskey” antenna can be purchased in transportable or permanent models.
Extended element antenna providing improved performance at the low frequency end.
