AT-984/G Fishing Reel Antenna
This is a multiple wavelength long wire antenna for the VHF
low band radios like the PRC-25 and PRC-77.
It provides more gain than the whips antennas or the RC-292 or OE-254
fixed station omni directional antennas. It is an unterminated
unlike the OE-303 half rhombic that uses a
It's also used with HF radios like the PRC-104.
HF frequencies NVIS mode operation would be expected, like
with the AS-2259, since it will be used at
The antenna consists of a fishing reel that holds 150 feet of phospher
bronze antenna wire. The starting end of the wire has a "Y" lug
will fit under the AB-591 spring mast base to hold the wire on the
terminal of the PRC-25 or PRC-77 radio. By using the AB-591 the
in the radio is depressed telling the radio that the 3 meter AT-271
pole antenna is in use. Without the AB-591 the radio would try to
match the 1 meter tape antenna.
The AT-984 is carried in a canvas case that attaches to web gear using
standard ALICE clips.
