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!
The Hi-Q-5/160 antenna is similar in construction to our Military
version, with the exception that the CAP/BASE of the coils is 6061-T6
