Modern Military HF- Antennas of Com. Cars


Magnet antenna above the roof of the car cabin

Antennas DDRR also are used on some heavy tanks or BMI (battle machine of infantry). On this military vehicle the antenna DDRR serves as a rail for other hand. Antenna DDRR has mechanically strong design, so it is difficult to damage an antenna DDRR in battle.



Seldom use two antennas DDRR that fed with some phase shift to create special diagram directivity. Figure 6 shows such antenna array.

 Antenna DDRR is very strong and allows to do communication when the car is moving. Radio amateurs also can use antenna DDRR for the operation in ether at installation on the roof of their car.
