The AT-271B/PRC is a compact HF tactical antenna designed for use with portable manpack radio systems. The AT-271B/PRC is constructed of seven lightweight, brass tubes. A stainless steel cable threaded through the sections holds them together when the antenna is folded for storage. With the assistance of a tension spring, the same cable holds all the sections together when the antenna is erected. This type of construction contributes to the antenna's light weight, compactability and portability.
The AT-271B/PRC is usually employed with the AB-591/PRC-25 rigid base mount, available seperately.
