Chameleon CHA MIL Whip Antenna


The Cha Mil whip is a broadband monopole antenna designed for portable or manpack radios requiring compact but rugged antenna systems.


If used in a stand-alone setup the antenna will cover 28 – 54 MHz with an external antenna tuner. To enhance RF propagation and antenna performance a ground-plane is required. The CHA MIL whip can also be used as accessory and replace the upper section of the CHA V1L and CHA V2L to increase the performance between 1.8 – 7.5 MHz.

Combined only with the CHA HYBRID the CHA MIL will whip cover 1.8 – 54 MHz (limited performance from 1.8 – 3.5 MHz). Its design has been borrowed from similar antennas utilized by many armies all over the world. The CHA MIL is very hardy, sturdy and portable (being collapsible).

Un-mounted the entire antenna length is less than 29”. The 5 aluminum sections are hold together by a piece of 1/8 th inch US GI MIL SPEC shock cord that can be replaced by the operator if necessary.

But its 85% elongation and break point of 95 pounds properties make the 1/8 th inch US GI MIL SPEC shock cord the best on the market.
