    The EMCOMM III Portable antenna is a portable High Frequency (HF) antenna capable of covering bands 160m – 6m, and can handle 100 watts SSB and 50 watts on CW, RTTY, FM, AM. This antenna is great for hiking, backpacking, and camping. It is also useful for military, government agencies, non- governmental organizations (NGOs), Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS), Civil Air Patrol (CAP), Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) / Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES), Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN), CERT and any and all ham radio operators involved in field communication and those preparing for any natural or man made disasters.

    I like the flexibility of this antenna.

    A few points: The Chameleon website says this is a 10-160M antenna vs a 6-160M, and that it weighs 1.5 pounds vs 1 pound. If adding the 4 twenty-five foot counterpoise and 50 foot coax feed with choke, I’d reckon the entire package would be closer to 5 pounds, which I still consider very reasonable for portable use. They also could have integrated the feed line choke into the balun box (4:1 plus 1:1 = hybrid) and not made it necessary to purchase a separate feed line choke.
