The Astel Comms LW8 series of HF portable antennas have proved to be rugged in the field of operation and yet can be used in most situations with a high degree of success. These qualities have ensured its success in a wide range of military applications from the Antarctic to the Tropics. Since its original design Astel Comms have endeavoured to improve the basic unit taking advantage of the wide range of improved materials now available.
Astel Comms have a range of purpose designed masts for use with this antenna. Details are available on request.
Variations on the standard design are manufactured to meet specific customer requirements. NATO codified versions are available.
