The Alpha FEA-FMJ is a system that will handle 500W PEP SSB, and which is pre-tuned and requires no moving clips on coils or readjusting of whips for tuning. You may also use an external antenna tuner if your antenna is installed over a poor ground or not placed in a clear area.
Purpose: When fully deployed with the NVIS element, the antenna system is directional and can be is configured to launch your signal at your target in the opposite direction the NVIS element is run. For an omnidirectional signal pattern, you may remove the NVIS element.
Installation Note: Never Remove or Loosen any of the Bolts, Washers, Nuts, or Caps on the Alpha Match.
History: Years of perfecting the manufacturing process has enabled Alpha Antenna to offer the worlds most refined & resilient antenna, which is now in use by NASA and military forces around the globe. (Ref. Capabilities Statement )
Function: For targeted rapid deployment of ALE/Digital/CW/SSB/AM modes. The Alpha FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) system enhances high band DX with the Vertical MilStick element while low band Near Vertical Incident Skywave is simultaneously enhanced with the NVIS element, per the antenna model at the bottom of this page.
Deployment Options: A) Base Camp, B) Portable, C) Mobile, and D) Manpack.
