Cobra Mist - Additional Test Antenna
For relevant information , please click one of the buttons below
Cobra Mist employed a very ambitious antenna design based on a fan arrangement of log-periodic dipoles, together with extremely high transmit power.
Unfortunately the development programme was beset with difficulties and delays, the most significant of which was a range-related noise problem, the source of which was never definitively established. This ultimately led to the abandonment of the project in mid-1973.
Various experiments were undertaken at the time to try to locate and remedy the source of the noise, some of the testing involving additional antenna structures.

The purpose of this report is to record the details of these additional test antennas, their experimental purpose, their physical design, and any remains or evidence still remaining.
Research continues to establish details of any further test antennas, the specific way in which they were used, exactly where they were located, and whether any visible evidence remains.
