Q-TEK PENETRATOR
Q-TEK PENETRATOR
1 of 3

"We've sold 100s all over Europe"

  • 15 foot high
  • NO ATU required
  • comes in 3 x 5 foot sections 
  • 200W PEP
  • SO239 fitting at base
  • mast clamps supplied

How do they work

Based on an ex Military / Naval design the concept of this antenna has been around for many years in various forms. Its basic idea is to give a low SWR reading regardless of the transmitted frequency this is achieved by the implementation of a wide band matching device housed in an aluminum die-cast box found at the base of the antenna.

    

The antenna is fed via 50 OHM coaxial cable to the SO239 socket at the base. Because of the wide band matching unit no ATU is required and the antenna can be used on all frequencies from 1.6MHz to 60MHz.
Fantastic for use in flats or where larger antenna arrays cannot be used. On the Continent, especially in Germany where many people live in flats, we have sold hundreds.

Being a limited space antenna if you have room for long wire antennas or full size verticals or even multi element beams then this is not the antenna for you, however if you do live in a limited space environment or you require a portable antenna that requires no tuning and can be used immediately, then you will be amazed.

   Here are just 2 of many reports that customers have sent to us...

Sir,
  I recently purchased the Q-TEK penetrator from you, I have an Alinco DJ 70 TH. I took the penetrator on holiday to Skegness, mounted just 20 foot above sea level with one foot of wire for the earth connection, along with many European contacts I also worked...

 XO1 CW1     5-9 both ways    on 20m 
 VK2 XH  5-9 5-4  on 20m
 JA2 VMD  5-9 5-4  on 20m
 PY5 CC  5-9 5-2  on 24.950MHz

Plus 5 new islands on 20 mtrs EC0 53 - 129 - 016 - 090 and 030. The antenna is very good as I can change bands any time and the SWR is no higher than 1.3 to 1. Think the antenna will be even better as cycle 23 gets better. I would like to try the wire version to see if it is as good as the vertical.
  Many thanks.

From one of our customers in Cyprus... address supplied...

Dear Sirs,
  I purchased the penetrator antenna for use on my Cyprus holiday home. I needed an unobtrusive antenna and the Q-TEK certainly fitted the bill. I also painted it sky blue to match the Cyprus climate! Having previously always used large arrays I must say that I am delighted with its flexibility and performance even on the LF bands. Apart from EU's extracts from my log are JA's, CX4, VU2, K/W, LU1, 9J2, 9H3, CN0, 5Z4, VK2, PY2, VK6 and VE3 all in a couple of months CW operating. One question I have is on the earthing alignment. Currently I am running about 10 mtrs or wire out on the flat roof of the home. I wonder if a ground plane arrangement would not be better. Maybe you have some info on that you could share?  Meanwhile congratulations on a simple antenna that certainly does the job in a very practical way and efficient manner.
  Yours sincerely
