AD-26/CW: wideband sectionalized whip VHF antenna for manpack radios, 30 - 108 MHz; Rev. A

The manpack VHF antenna AD-26/CW is a  wideband VHF monopole antenna intended for use primarily on manpack radios. The antenna radiator is composed of 8 sections made of thin wall copper plates stainless steel with tubular joints and elastic rope enabling fast deployment. The antenna has built-in a special passive transformer tuning network enclosed in fiberglass housing above the input coaxial connector. Above the transformer unit is so called “goose neck” enables that the antenna is always in vertical position. 
The antenna is wideband and therefore suitable for use with standard VHF radios as well with “frequency hopping” systems for work in stay with radio on the ground or on the back, concerning the antenna length. All metal parts of the antenna are galvanically protected. Antenna radiator is painted MIL Green (RAL 6014) while the goose-neck and matching unit are black.
Different models regarding the frequency range, max. RF power, input connector, etc., are available on request. The AD-26/CW is considered also a military jamming antenna.
