Portable Ham Radio Antenna


In this video, Julian (OH8STN) tests a new ultralight off-center-fed dipole antenna from Chameleon Antennas.  According to Julian, this field-tested antenna is "efficient, rugged, waterproof" and "lightweight."

The antenna is suitable for rapid deployment at both your home station and any portable operation.

Here are some comments from Julian (OH8STN):

Hello operators In this episode of OH8STN ham Radio, we test an off center fed dipole as an ultra portable HF antenna option for QRP field station. The antenna is the OCF 40 from chameleon antenna. The HF dipole is resonant on 40, 20 and 10 meters. It handles 50 watts SSB and 20 watts all other modes. Join me as we test this off center fed dipole with the Xiegu X6100 running on solar power and Icom IC-705 running an NVIS winlink session on 40 meters. 73 Julian #oh8stn
