Broadband Terminated Dipole Antenna for ALE CHA TD

Thanks to Julian (OH8STN) for this excellent presentation about Broadband Terminated Dipole Antennas.  Although these antennas have definite military and government applications, they can be used successfully for Amateur Radio operations.

Here are some comments from Julian (OH8STN):

LE stands for Automatic Link Establishment. It's a voice and data mode system especially useful for establishing phone or real-time messaging on HF between two stations, or from the single station to a group or network of stations. its primary role is emergency communications. One of the features of automatic link establishment, either with embedded ALE, PC-ALE, or MARS-ALE, is its constant scanning of bands and channels on HF. Because of this, a specialized tuner or an antenna which requires no tuner, should be used. In this case, I'm using the Chameleon CHA TD Broadband Terminated Dipole Antenna. I've also posted some articles on - Getting started with ALE: - CHA TD Broadband Terminated Dipole Pages. - Japan to Finland ALE Link-Up on 20M - If you found this episode useful, consider dropping a buck in the tip-jar here: de oh8stn
