While many of my fellow radio amateurs are content with the annual ARRL Field Day held on the last full weekend of June, there are those who challenge both their equipment and survival skills by setting up field stations in the dead of winter. Such is the case with Michael Martens (KB9VBR) and Joe Schoebel (KD9CJX), who put their new Chameleon Emcomm III Portable Antenna to the test this past January (2019). The video takes you from antenna launch through actual on-air reports in a cold midwestern field day operation.  According to Michael and Joe, the Chameleon Portable HF Antenna works very well and is "ideal for hiking, camping, and both for tent and recreational vehicle camping."  You may want to try one of these simple, easy-to-use antennas for this upcoming ARRL Field Day or for your next portable operation.

Chameleon Emcomm III Portable Antenna (Winter Field Day) - Ham Radio Q&A. Post 1758.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5AHKAz3Zh4 What better way to test a new HF portable antenna than to subject it to winter conditions?  In this video from Michael Martens (KB9VBR), we get an excellent idea of how this new Chameleon Emcomm Portable Antenna works in an actual Winter Field Day environment.  According to Michael, the new antenna is "especially designed for short and long range" applications as well as for "manpack HF communications."  Michael adds that the antenna "is ideal for hiking, backpacking, and both tent and Recreational Vehicle (RV) camping." The video is useful, informative, and easy to understand.
