Type 966 was operating in VHF-Band naval long-range air surveillance radar width MTI facilities. It was used on British and Chilean frigates and destroyers. A common antenna was used via a duplexer for the transmitter and the receiver.
The first radars used the so-called “bedstead” antenna AKE(1) (see Figure 1). Later this antenna was double stacked to AKE(2). Antenna AKE(2) weighted 5 metric tons.
