||A reduced hazard antenna design will be developed for deployment on handheld and manpack radios. High voltage protection will be built into the antenna to prevent accidental electrical contact with high voltage power lines up to 25kVDC RMS. Prototypes of the high voltage protection devices will be developed and tested. The antenna design will be modeled before constructing a bench prototype, which will be tested for RF and HV protection performance.|
||Improved safety for all users of HF communications gear, particularly construction, utility, and electrical/power distribution workers.
