• Alpha EZMilitary, Chameleon MPAS Side by Side Comparison

Added at 2016-05-10 09:20:05

by OH8STN



Frustrated with over optimistic reviews, the series was put together to compare these systems to one another. We are looking at performance, durability, quality, construction, deployment configurations, and value for money..



Recently I completed a 4 part video series comparing the Alpha EZMilitary, to the Chameleon MPAS.

Initially I thought the series would be a complete no-brainer, as it is a common belief that both of these systems, are similar in design and manufacturing. Well, that could not have been further from the truth. Nevertheless the series looks at both systems objectively, and arrives at a what might be a surprising conclusion by the end of the series.

High resolution images supporting information and additional details are also available in the links found within this article.

These systems are tested with the understanding that they are broadband antenna systems offering 80-6M (Alpha), and 160-6M (Chameleon) coverage. Their primary role is to provide a “Multi-Configuration” rapid deployment, field portable antenna solution for field operations. What we are not doing, is comparing them to full scale antenna systems, since as compromise antennas, their primary role is providing worst case deployment options to their users.

Hopefully this series will debunk the tactical buzzwords, and clever marketing employed, thus removing any mysteries about either system.
