If you order an antenna and would like a balun installed on your new antenna,
we can do that for your at no extra LABOR charge.


With QRP / LOW POWER becoming more popular, we have added some nice, small, and compact antennas to our line. They are only rated at 150 watts, not 1500 watts. The standard models are made with the use of 16 gauge insulated wire. Like all of our Hy Power Antennas, we still use all the Hy Quality parts. We use stainless steel electrical hardware, SO-239 on the center insulator and two end insulators are included. All antennas are completely assembled and ready to install.

The 40 Meter Off Center Fed Antenna (OCF40Q) is a great multi-band antenna. It is a heavy duty QRP/Low Power antenna that uses #14 wire instead of the usual #16 wire used by our other QRP/Low power models. This antenna uses a 4 to 1 Guanella Current Balun that is rated at 250 watts, all stainless steel hardware, and covers the following ham bands: 2, 6, 10, 20, and 40 meters. The overall length of the antenna is 66 feet, one leg is 23 feet long and the other leg is 43 feet long. The feed of this antenna is placed 1/3 of the way in from one of the end insulators which would place the balun 23 feet in from the one end.

The 80 Meter Off Center Fed Antenna (OCF80Q) is also a great multi-band antenna. It is a heavy duty QRP/Low Power antenna that uses #14 wire instead of the usual #16 wire used by our other QRP/Low power models. This antenna also uses a 4 to 1 Guanella Current Balun this is rated at 250 watts, all stainless steel hardware, and covers the following ham bands: 6, 10, 12, 17, 20, 40, and 80 meters. The overall length of the antenna is 134 feet, one leg is 44.5 feet long and the other leg is 88 feet long. The feed of this antenna is placed 1/3 of the way in from one of the end insulators which would place the balun 44.5 feet in from the one end.

This is the most highly recommended antenna to be used for portable QRP and low power operating.
It also works well as a stealth type antenna for the primary station.
Five bands with only one coax connection.



Micro Series OCF40QM

Model Description Price S/H
OCF40QM 250 Watt 40 Meter Off Center Fed Antenna @ 66 Feet Long $101.95 $7.00

Band coverage: 2, 6, 10, 20, and 40 meters.

250 Watt 40 meter Off Center Fed Antenna with the antenna wire wound up on both sides of a 250 Watt 4:1 Guanella current micro balun sitting on a table

The “Micro Series” Off Center Fed antenna is made using #18 stranded insulated wire and a BNC to connect your coaxial cable. The GU4-HF-250-M balun, used on this antenna, uses the same cores that are used in the standard QRP OCF baluns. The balun enclosure is much smaller, 3" x 2" x 1". The end insulators are made from 3/8"round fiberglass. This antenna is not meant to be used for a permanent installation. It is designed for hams on the go. Backpackers love this antenna due to its compact size and weight. They can handle up to 250 watts.


Full Size Dipoles

Baluns are optional.

If you order an antenna and would like a balun installed on your new antenna,
we can do that for your at no extra LABOR charge.

Baluns keep the RF off of the outside shield of the coax and puts it on the antenna, where it belongs!

FSDP15QM with BNC for coax


The “Micro Series” antennas are made using #18 stranded insulated wire. The center connection is a banana jack to BNC adaptor and the end insulators are made from 3/8" round fiberglass.

These antennas are not meant to be used in a permanent installation. They are designed for hams on the go. Backpackers love these antennas due to their compact size and weight. They can easily handle up to 400 watts.

Any of these antennas can be fed using up to 35 feet of RG-174 coax. You can use a long run of RG 174 if you choose, but the losses get much higher. RG-174 will easily handle 100 watts.

Don’t forget to check out the BL-HF-250-M balun that is made to go with any of the Micro Dipoles.
