Abstract : Servo Corporation of America delivered a field test model of the switched loop antenna in early January. Pattern measurements at SURC were hampered by weather conditions and the evaluation tests were not completed until early spring. Two loop antennas cover the entire frequency range of 0.5 to 200 MHz yielding satisfactory D/F characteristics. This, combined with the compactness, rugged construction, and 25-pound maximum weight, makes this system suitable for use in highly fluid combat situations. (Author)
