Abstract:

Analysis of the performance of Radio Set ANPRC-104 over the range between 2 and 30 MHz was made using several candidate antennas for comparison with the performance of the ANPRC-104 when its 8-foot antenna was used. No significant difference in performance was noted when the man made skin contact with the antenna. Improved groundwave communications should be possible with the equipment operating at higher frequencies as compared with performance at the lower portion of the 2-to 30-MHz range. Reduction in absorption of energy by the body of the man wearing the packset can be accomplished by setting the packset on the ground and transmitting as a monopole system with the man at least 4 to 5 feet away or by clothing the man with a uniform or suit made of conductive material.
