NEW from Hi-Q-Antennas:
HOW GOOD IS a Hi-Q Antenna?
Follow one 24/7/365
On the HFN HAM ALE.
As of June 2013 W6HIQ is an official HFN Pilot Station! Under W6HIQ call letters.
I have set up one of the std. Hi-Q-6/160 RT MC-3H HF Mobile antenna on the top of my carport with ONLY an 8’SS whip and NO CapHat. This is to represent an average HF mobile operator’s set up with the Hi-Q-6 mobile antenna.
Purpose: To validate the antenna performance, Radiation Efficiency for the upcoming RT (Rapid Tuning) antenna for our military to do ALE (Automatic
BENEFIT to HAM’s: quickly determine the HF Propagation to and from anywhere on our world.
The Radio is a Motorola Micom 3R appx. 125 Watts average on all of the ham bands programmed in for HAM ALE.
The antenna is Pre-Tuned for 3596 kc USB and an LDG Z-11 Pro doing the Re-Tune to the following frequencies:
Freq. in kHz All USB channels: HFN
You can follow my transmission on those frequencies typically every HR on each of the HAM ALY frequencies: ON HFLINK.net
Once opened you will see FOUR areas:
LOG In, - A World Google Map, - Network Activities Log-Stations on the Air
And a Call sign Box showing who is-was on the air and WAS HEARD in the last 24 Hrs.
Enlarge the map zoom in So. California, if you wish to see the transmissions from the W6HIQ station from the Temecula California location. Point you curser on the square to ID W6HIQ and or the Receiving station.
The Color of the line will tell you the MUF was at the time of transmission from W6HIQ to; for example on June 15th stn. In Malaysia, YD0XH7, in Florida KJ4AYT, in San Francisco, KQXA and in Sweden SM5RVH has heard AND REPLIED to my stn.
Under severe testing (Hi-Q-software TORTURE, 135,000 tuning cycles) is the NEW Hi-Q RT (Rapid Tuning) antenna for our military, that will do 3G ALE.
It now tunes from 1.6 to 60 MHz in <700 milli seconds! OR QSY within the band in < 20 ms.

|Million Mile Hi-Q Antenna
A Hi-Q Antennas Eham Review by Harold KA0SAB
In my past review I wrote how I had over 1 million miles on my 5-80 Antenna,
well as I stated I wrote Charlie to let him know, and he said he would
rebuild it for me at no charge!
He instead sent me a Brand New Piranha for FREE before I even sent him my
old one, just so I would not be with out one, and because I had over a
million miles on it!
By the time I took the old 5-80 off the Semi, I had 1 million 61,487 miles
on it and still working! I started having a problem about a month ago when I
would get into heavy rain and snow.
That is a lot of use with out a problem!
I looked at other Antenna's, but the prices ranged from $669.00 + mount, to
more for 10-160 for a 3" Tar-heel that would change height to $858.00 3"
Scorpio that still would change height and has a seal that will go up and
down the out side of the coil tube. That means I would have to clean the out
side of the tube whenever it may have collected any dirt.
The other thing I did not like is when the Antenna changes height what
happens when I get into freezing rain or Ice?
I would have to stop and tap the side of the coil tube to break it off so I
could change bands and take a chance on putting a dent or something in it.
The High-Q stays the same height and is all sealed inside to keep it Clean.
I decided to stay with the Hi-Q and that is when I called Charlie and let me
tell you I am glad I did! He not only stands behind his product, he went
beyond and sent me a new one for free.
I have now had this Antenna on for 2 weeks and it is out performing my old
Hi-Q ant with out a doubt!
I have worked (north west coast of England in a pile up to a gentle man
walking down the beach pulling a wagon he called it a trolly with battery's
radio and 1/4 wave ant with a cap hat to in a pile up, to working Germany
and Italy,France,Tazmania,New Zealand, Africa,Austria, Wales, and many
others on 100 Watts Mobile, in pile ups and getting through, with people
asking me what kind of Amp I am running! NONE!
In summary for $550.00 which is cheaper then the other antennas and to me
better built and will run 10-160,and does not depend on changing height, and
is sealed better. I have had this one on all bands and works GREAT! My
contacts have been made mainly at night and in the early morning hours.
I am looking forward to another Millions miles of trouble free service!
Charlie I can't thank you enough.
I have 2 other ham's that drive for me and will be ordering from Charlie!
In Three month's I will write more on this Antenna and how it is working
out. I will be parking my Truck at field Day this year and using the Piranha
as one of the Antennas, so others can see how well it works. I have run
BB3's and other screw driver Antennas and this is the Best!
"This Hi-Q-5/80 RT antenna is appx. 7 years old, has 1,061.487 (Yes, one
BREAKTHROUGH in the Hi-Q HF Antenna tuning SPEED!
Tune from 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz
No more waiting around for your antenna
Patent Pending!We are pleased to announce that the step by step improvement in the Hi-Q HF antenna’s loading coil’s tuning time From 160 M to the 10 M band went from the DC motor tuned time of > 1 minute to STEPPER motor tuning (controlling) To 20 seconds with appropriate software!
Note that the task is to change inductance from appx. 350 uH down to < 1 uH.
That is: move the contactor appx. 12” in vertical distance and maintain accuracy on frequency repeatability within < 1 kc. This was alright, BUT still not fast enough for ALE.
Further development has led to the NEW RT (Rapid Tuning) Hi-Q HF antenna where great improvement in FRICTION and WEIGHT reduction of the Hi-Q Patented loading coil design. By employing Silver plated BRASS balls and Silver plated loading coil wire the combined friction and contactor weight
Has resulted in a 400% reduction in friction and allowing a size 17 stepper motor to do the Rapid Tuning.
The controller used for the RT antenna was developed for the Hi-Q Military Antennas by QCI, it now tunes ...
From 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz in 700 milliseconds!
However the Radio Frequency Propagation does not require an antenna to be tuned from 1.8-30 MHz normally, it is more standard that one change frequency in smaller blocks keeping up with the Day-Night propagation. Being aware of this we make to loading coil contactor to be in the MIDDLE of tunable coil, therefore cutting the tuning speed to HALF! Further to this now one can achieve very fast tuning, for example: Antenna currently tuned to 10 MHz and need to go to 14 MHz the tuning time is 40 ms!
Software developed to remotely tune the frequency range from 1.8-30 MHz allows having over 500
Channels (frequencies) in addition there is 10 channels can be dedicated to discreet frequencies that are NOT accessible to the radio operator to change, Only to the radio shop technician.
The RT antenna is now available, supplied with the NEW stepper motor, QCI controller and software that runs on Windows 7.

We pleased to announce a NEW
Hi-Q Ham Radio Mobile antenna:
The PIRANHA is an OMNIVOROUS Hi-Q-5/160 RT Ruggedized antenna that EATS scorpion antennas for BREAKFAST, tarheel antennas for LUNCH and SPITS out hisierra antennas as they are NOT digestible!
Initially it was developed for the US Military with STEPPER motor tuning; now it is with 12VDC motor for the Ham use.
Mechanical dims.: 3” tall, plus whip of your choice
Weight: 8 lbs., BLACK Loading coil, 2” dia. Alu. Mast.
Electrical: same as the Hi-Q-5/160 on our website.
Available in July 2012.
Price: Including WQD, mounting kit: $550.00
On 12/1/2011 Hi-Q-Military Antennas has submitted the Hi-Q proposal for several HF antennas destined for the ISS. A major Aerospace Company is the prime contractor and Hi-Military Antennas is the subcontractor.
A very challanging program as the antenna will be in SPACE VACUUM and will be "seeing" a drastic tempreture change of Plus 200 C to Minus 200C in SECONDS!
PRICE REDUCTION on Hi-Q Antennas!
Thanks to the GREAT year for the Hi-Q HF Military Antenna sales
We are able to REDUCE the prices on Hi-Q-6 series and the EX models!
As for the past ten years we have been the LEADERS in PERFORMANCE and QUALITY
an an affordable prices.
Further we offer a TWO payment method of antenna package priced over $900.00
Pay a first payment with a check or Paypal of $500.00 pay the balance in within 30 days.
You made My Year!
2010 was my 10th year of designing, Manufacturing the Hi-Q HF series of
The RETURNING and NEW customers have made it the MOST successful and Profitable Year!
To indicate the Ham sales success,( EXCLUDING MIL. Sales)
just see the USPS, UPS, FedEx shipping cost we had in 2010, that was over $53,000 (compared to the $35,000 in 2009).
This amount is probably more than the entire year’s worth of sale of some of the brand-x makers.
We value the orders from our HAM friends and due to the large orders from the military, we have been able to SET the prices on many of the Hi-Q antenna versions much lower than any mobile antenna out there: SEE AND COMPARE!

Hi-Q is please to share with you the LATEST development in SPECIALZED NVIS Ground Penetrating HF Radar antennas for NASA’s space project.
Basic antenna specs: each side is 52” long, 4” diameter, tuning range; 3.5 to 30 MHz, .weigh for the one goes in space will be < 10 lbs.
This and other projects for our military continually provides and advancement of our HAM products.
Despite of the efforts by jealous and envious people to discredit the Hi-Q products, our sales to the HAM community is DOUBLING every year.
|Attention NEW and Past Hi-Q Customers!
Please read the TRUTH about the 3905 Vista California antenna shootout on my Hi-Q website. IF you can believe that HAMSTICS or any other contraptions has a better Radiation Efficiency than ANY Hi-Q antenna then please buy one of those and STOP reading.
Otherwise read on and carefully compare ANY Hi-Q product to what is out there.
ASK them to show MEASURED test results of Radiation Efficiency, as THAT is the ONLY thing matters: Radiate that RF or DISSIPATE IT in the antenna!
We are now in the TENTH year of HF antenna design and manufacturing here in California. Our accomplishment is well known in the military, including Land-Sea and Space.
Hi-Q Antenna users:
As you read on, you can see that the Vista shootout results are FAULTY, SLANTED to Damage the Hi-Q antennas ten years worth of Quality and Performance in the HF Mobile use all around the world.
THAT IS: You the (Hi-Q-antenna owner) have an INFERIOR product ACCORDING TO their results that a Hamstick can beat.
Therefore, here is a Hi-Q OFFER: Send your Hi-Q antenna back, exchange it for a better performing Hamstick! (According to their test results)! Ask AA1NZ about this!
ENTER a “QUACK” * Mr. Know it All! K0bg.
He has gone on a rampage to bash the Hi-Q products (he had FOUR of them, written many articles praising them as being the very best for the past six years, now it is ALL BAD)!
One can find these articles in the Google Archives, as he so carefully REMOVED all of the praises from his MEDICINE CHEST known as the k0bg.com website. Replaced it with derogatory statements (without any proof of measured test results, having NONE of the ingredients: Education in the field of HF antenna design and the KNOW-HOW to use test equipment (he has none).
My Definition of a QUACK:
A person who pretends to be an EXPERT of ALL things on all matters BUT he is EXPERT at NONE!
News Release 9/09:
Please to announce that we have developed for our military and now available for the HAM community a 5/16 Diameter Tapered Stainless spring steel 8' long Whip with a 3/8-24 SS stud mount whip adapter.
Please go to the Accessories pages and click on 8' SS Whips.
It will be also applicable to the Ham/Commercial versions of the Hi-Q-6-160 RT MC-4 series (Stepper motor tuned) On the Move (HF Mobile antennas) that is:
This small unit will go in line with the COAX Cable and tune the Hi-Q antenna from 1.8 to 30 MHz in less than 10 seconds. Or appx. 1 inch per second Contactor travel.
We expect these units to in production by the end of this year.
News Release: June 2009

Hi-Q-6/80 RT -MC
The NEW Hi-Q DC motor Controller.
Developed for the USMC HF antennas, now available to the HAM community.
Announcing the "EB" (Egg Beater) CapHat!
Due to its LARGE Capture Area In comparison to a 3' long whip installed on the Hi-Q-5/80 RT antenna the following IMPROVEMENT was measured on the HP VNA.
Please note that the 3' whip length is chosen to maintain the overall Hi-Q- Antenna height of 6'.
When an other 3' whop was installed on the TOP of the
EB-8 CapHat, then having an overall antenna height would be 9' and further improvement is realized.
This method of adding whip length to the top of the EB-4 or EB-8 to achieve the 13'6" limit great improvement can be measured.
So what will it buy for ANY HF mobile antenna?
You can "SEE" the difference by setting the resonance to a given low band frequency, example; 3.900 kc, count the NUMBER of turns of the EXPOSED (active) TURNS with your existing whip length. Then install an EB-4 or EB-8 and count again the EXPOSED TURNS!
WOW! MANY turn less at the SAME frequency resonance.
Which then translates to LESS coil wire resistance and GREATER RE, (Radiation Efficiency).
Priceing: EB-4 $75.00
Plus S&H of $7.50
This is all great! But while you are trying to improve your OLD CONTRAPTION by the Brand X makers, why not go for the GOLD Standard:
73, from the Innovators!

73, Charlie, W6HIQ
The NEW Hi-Q-6/2-30HF Submarine antenna has proven to be substantionally better than the Hi-Q-5/2-30 HF submarine antenna! Although it is 4 inches shorter than the -5 antenna, being ONLY 50" tall the Radiation Efficiency is many dBi better than expected.
It has been under test for over 4 mos. Mounted on a large Dodge Van for imitation of a submarine sail.
On the Air test is mostly on 1.800 to 2.000 MHz and 3.600 to 4.000 MHz with either an Icom Pro II. Or a Mobat Micom-2R transceivers with less than 100 watt RF output.
Voice communication on the 160 M band up to 2000-mile radius was achieved and on the 80 M band the Pacific Rim countries and to the US east cost war regularly done at the appropriate times of the day.
Several times the South African station, ZS6CCY was heard on 3.795 MHz, but was not possible to penetrate the huge pile up of stations calling him.
We are very proud of this Extreame Short HF antenna and we are considering a Ham/Commercial version to be released early next year.

While the brand X makers turn the handle to churn out more contraptions we have designed a new highly efficient tunable centerloaded vertical for you.
Since mid December of �06 the development and testing the Hi-Q-5/2-30 OE-1538 HF Submarine antenna has convinced us to release the HAM version of this great performing EXTREME SHORT HF remotely tunable antenna with the ham designation of: Hi-Q-5/160 RT EX.
This is the famous antenna that was used to make several QSO�s with Bill, ZS6CCY in South Africa on 3793 kc early this year, from Southern California.
The way I�d like to put it: PUTTING MILEAGE on the antenna!The Ham version has an option to add a long whip or attach a long wire to further improve the RE (Radiation Efficiency)
Physical size; 54� tall, 5� dia. loading coil remotely tunable from 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz. Can easily camouflaged where CC&R�s are rigid.
