The CHA LEFS is a six-band, no-tuner, High Frequency (HF) antenna for use on the 40, 20, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meter Amateur Radio Service (ham) bands. It is a minimalistic design and lightweight components are intended for the serious backpacker and outdoor adventurer. Leave the tuner and SWR meter at home – just bring a radio and a pair of boots!
The CHA LEFS is designed for the trail. The sturdy line winder with integral high- efficiency impedance matching network transformer, Ultra-thin 20 gauge PTFE antenna KEVLAR wire, and 50 feet of lightweight Micro 90 paracord enables highly portable six band operation without the extra bulk of an antenna tuner. It can even do Near- Vertical Incident Sky wave (NVIS) communication! The CHA LEFS is perfect for backpackers, hikers, bikers, campers, and survival communication. Get one for your next expedition!
