The Alpha LT-FMJ HF antenna fits into a 16-inch field bag included. This pre-tuned multipurpose antenna does not require moving clips on the coils or whip adjustment for fine-tuning. You can also use an external antenna tuner if the antenna is installed on poor ground or is not located in a free area.
Purpose: When fully implemented with NVIS, Vertical & Grounded Counterpoise elements, the antenna system can be configured to launch the signal on the target in the opposite direction to that of the NVIS element. For an omnidirectional signal model, you can remove the NVIS element.
Installation Note: Never remove or loosen bolts, washers, nuts or caps on Alpha Match.
History: Years of perfecting the manufacturing process have enabled Alpha Antenna to offer the world's most refined and durable antenna, which is now in use by NASA and military forces around the world.
Function: for a rapid targeted implementation of THE/Digital/CW/SSB/AM modes. The LT-FMJ improves the high-band DX with the vertical MilStick element while the near-vertical incident near the Skywave band is simultaneously improved with the NVIS element, according to the antenna model at the bottom of this page.
