Antenna-Chameleon Dipole

Chameleon Dipole Antenna

This is the antenna that I used for Winter Field Day 2022.

It is composed of three components:

  1. CHA Hybrid-mini (60' wire)
  2. 2xCHA MIL 2.0
  3. CHA JawMount

All of these components add up to about $500.

At Winter Field Day 2021, we used a Chameleon antenna in a vertical configuration. It consisted of a of the CHA MIL 2.0 and a CHA MIL EXT 2.0 with CHA Spike Mount. We found it worked really well - that's one of the main reasons that I got the system I used in 2022.

The transformer that they have with the CHA Hybrid-micro is smaller than the mini that I have - it only allows for 50 watts on CW (or digital), so I opted for the larger one so I could run 100 watts.
