Manufacturer: Hi-Q, United States
Availability: IN STOCK
Ruggedized Version of the -5
The NEWLY developed PIRANHA series of Hi-Q Antennas are the derivative of the Military On the Move HF mobile and fixed station antennas.
This is the LATEST innovation in HF mobile antennas! It is the PATENTED version of the standard Hi-Q Series of HF mobile and base antennas. The loading coil has 9.5″ usable travel with approximately 350 uH inductance.
The Hi-Q-5/160 will cover the 10-160 M bands.

Excellent performance on the rest of the higher bands!
** NOTE: If 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 aluminium.
