Pagination or Media Count:
The report covers a Foreshortened Center-Fed VHF Antenna. This type of structure provides optimum decoupling from a vehicle frame, resulting in minimal pattern and impedance effects. The antenna is capable of operation in a range from 30 to 76 mc and is fully compatible with matching unit-base MX-6707 VRC. It has a reduced length six foot maximum, direct replacement for the whip assembly of the AS-1729 VRC antenna. When installed in military vehicles on antenna base assembly MX-6707 VRC and used with Receiver-Transmitter Radios RT-246 VRC and RT-524 VRC, it is automatically tuned to one of ten subbands of the radio set. Also, it is capable of operating with the ANPRC-70 and ANPRC-25 radio sets. Author
