Military 2.0: improved version of the EzMilitary!
The "Multiband Military 2.0" is an axtremely portable and robust antenna, which can be used without tuner for all bands from 10 to 80m. it's main features are rapid deployement, easy operation (no tuner) and suitability for local contacts and DX.
The heart of the antenna is a newly develped balun, which is enclsed in a very rugged metal case. To this balun two radiatos rea conencted: a vertical whip and a horizontal wire. A further wire serves as a counterpise, both wires come equipped with a ground peg for fast setup. With the combination of vertical and horizontal radiators are small directional effect can be observed, good for DX.
For installation a 'Jaw Mount' is included. This is a very heavy clamp which can be installed very fast to a fence post, a large tree branch or other suitable points. Onto this clamp the balun is mounted, which connects radiators and counterpoise. To the same balun the coaxial cable to the radio is conected. The connector is a PL socket.
Due to the wideband design of the antenna, no tuner is required under msot conditions. The SWR is usually below 2:1, at the lower band edge it cab be slightly higher. The length of the vertical whip is approx. 4m, the horizontal radiator wire is 7.6m long, the counterpoise about 2.4m. The huge benefit of this antenna is that it can be installed very rapidly. In combination with the small packing size (a bag with only 42cm length is included) the result is an excellent antenna for mountain hikes, walks Fienddays or other portable activities like SOTA. The max. allowed transmit power is 500W, the weight incl. bag is only 2.6 kg.
