INTRODUCTION

Tactical antennas are designed for efficiency and ease-of-use, and are ruggedized to take the abuse they receive in the field. Some antennas are easy to use, such as a whip antenna that is used in high mobility operations. Others, like directional antennas, require a working knowledge of antenna engineering. All antennas either release or capture electromagnetic radiation.”
