This is the LATEST innovation in HF mobile
The Hi-Q-4/160 will cover the 10-160 M
bands (i.e.: 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz.) It is the PATENTED version of the
standard Hi-Q Series of HF mobile antennas. Similar in size as theHi-Q-4/80,

4" x 10 "
Polycarbonte (Lexan) tubing,
8" of coil is usable/tunable
102' whip (not supplied) and
a CapHat with 32" lobes (supplied in Package B).
Will resonate at 1820 Kc. 80-40-20-17m: same as 160m 6-10-12m: use short 36" whip or CapHat only
Less than 8 lbs
Tuning Method :
at the base, sliding up/down. RT:
Hi-Q DC Controller or similar controller. ALL
Hi-Q-Antennas now have a magnet to count rotations of
the motor-output shaft. So, by adding an optionalreed
you get a "pulse per revolution" for the Hi-Q DC
Controller or similar controller.
on the rest of the higher bands!
this was a BRAND "X" screwdriver antenna it would have a Radiation
efficiency of Less than 1/10th watt (that is right, one tenth of a watt
out of your 100 w. radio)... a real QRP set up. And, yes, QRP rigs get
out, but with the Hi-Q Series antennas you WORK THE WORLD!
