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
Tuning Method :
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!
