Ultimate Portable Ham Radio Antenna | Off-Center Fed Dipole

If you need an "efficient, rugged, waterproof, lightweight antenna" for emergency use or field operations, then please consider the OCF-40 Chameleon Antenna.

According to Julian (OH8STN), this off-center fed dipole design would be ideal for portable use in SOTA (Summits On The Air) and POTA (Parks On The Air) activities.

Here are some observations from Julian (OH8STN):

An off center fed dipole antenna might be the ultimate portable lightweight hf antenna available today. Let's take a look at the OCF40 from Chameleon Antenna. Hello Operators. There are times operating man-portable when efficiency and portability are of greater importance than riggedness. This lightweight and portable HF antenna is extremely efficient, weights nothing, and may become the primary antenna for an ultra portable option for a 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 ______________________________________________________________________________- Want something interesting to dive in to while waiting for the next video?
