The 3046 is a low profile, 150 W HF antenna tuning unit designed to deliver high performance and reliability in the world's harshest environments.

With up to 150 W RF power handling capability, the 3046 can be used for voice (including frequency hopping) and data operation over the full 2 to 30 MHz frequency band. The tuner has an unlimited tune from memory capacity, and using a state-of-the-art tuning algorithm, new frequencies are tuned in typically less than one second.

The 3046’s innovative circuit design ensures power delivery to the antenna is maximised, and receive mode performance is optimised by the internal receive mode amplifier. These features combine to provide an easy-to-use, trouble-free, high performance mobile antenna solution.

The 3046 is offered with a 3 m carbon fiber MIL spec whip antenna, MIL spec rubber spring and NATO hole pattern base also with a compatible vehicle mounting bracket optional accessory. The 3 m whip can be configured for NVIS operation using the tie down kit included and can also be extended to 7 m with the 3 section Extension and Guy Kit for semi-permanent stationary use. An additional antenna accessory is the 9 m tactical long wire kit designed to attach directly to the NATO base stud.
