“25W Wolf” Manpack HF Antenna

The “25W Wolf” Folded HF Dipole antenna – your go-to solution for swift and reliable regional coverage HF communications in environmental disasters and similar critical scenarios, where rapid deployment is crucial.

Based on the successful higher power “Wolf” manpack HF antenna widely used worldwide, the “25W Wolf” and “Wolf Pup” HF antennas are designed for lightweight and swift deployment. They offer an extended frequency range up to 60 MHz, making them ideal for battery-powered transportable and man-pack VHF and HF radio transceivers.

Choose between two versions, both featuring the same frequency range and power rating specification. The “Wolf Pup” is half the length of the “25W Wolf,” perfect for limited deployment areas.

Featuring a compact and fully encapsulated HF balun and load, both versions ensure lightweight and rapid deployment. Kevlar-strengthened antenna elements provide durability and reliability in various scenarios.

This versatile HF antenna can be configured as a Flat Top NVIS antenna, Inverted ‘V’ for medium to long ranges, or a sloping directional antenna.

With robust NVIS capabilities, the antenna allows for communication over mountainous terrain or in jungle environments. Its broadband coverage enables excellent ALE (Automatic Link Establishment) operations without the need for a tuner/coupler, reducing system costs and overall weight.

Enjoy easy installation with no radial ground plane or grounding required, making it the perfect choice for rooftop installations.
