                          " QSO - KING "


                      --- LIMITED SPACE ANTENNA -- 

       -------- Rated at 2000 Watts PEP -------

                 *TUNES ALL HF BANDS  160 - 6  METERS*

                                        NOTE *** A wide range tuner will be needed to tune this antenna to 160 meters


"The  " QSO - KING " is our latest antenna design  developed to meet the needs of amateurs, short wave listeners, and experimenters who have limited space to install an antenna. It is small enough to be easily hidden from view.  With the recent improvements in antenna tuners it provides a very good solution to many installation problems.

If you are limited on space to hang an antenna, but still want to use all of the HF bands, then the"QSO-KING" is a good choice for you.

The Maple Leaf "QSO-KING" is an end fed, multiband, wire antenna that will cover all bands from 160 to 6 meters, including the WARC Bands, as well as 60 meters and MARS frequencies.

The QSO-KING is the perfect antenna for hams living in HOA controlled housing, hams desiring a very stealthy antenna --- apartment dwellers, back packers, vacationing, RV antenna, Field Day operations, sail boats, portable operating, back yard installations, ARES and RACES, etc.

*****You have your choice of antenna lengths. Here are your choices  --- 44 ft. --- 49 ft --- 53 ft --- or 59 feet

NOTE *** If you don't specify a certain length I will ship the 59 ft. model and let you cut it to your desired length.


 ***We make this same antenna design in many different lengths. Please see our other "QSO-KING" antennas on E-Bay to find the perfect length for you.  Simply type --- end fed antenna ---- into the E-Bay search box and it will take you to all of our "QSO-KING" models.



***100%  ALL Stainless Steel Hardware 

*** Massive High Power Toroid Core  to withstand high power applications

***14 Guage "Thermaleze" high temperature toroid wire

*** Extremely Heat Resistant "Teflon Tubing" covering the "Thermaleze" wire. 

***  NOTE  ---- The "Thermaleze/Teflon" combination has been tested and will withstand 15 Kilo-Volts with no thermal breakdown.

*** Balun design was tested and endorsed by the late Jerry Sevick, well know author, Electrical Engineer, and considered the formost authority on baluns and transmission line transformers.

*** 100% water proof  balun enclosure

*** 100% money back satisfaction guarantee !!!!!!!!! (buyer pays return shipping)



It takes only moments to deploy the QSO-KING. Pull the wire end into a tree, hang it off the balcony, lay it on the roof, hook it to a pole, hook it to a building, etc., and you are on the air and making contacts.


***Most ham bands will be easily tuned by the tuner in your radio.

One of the greatest things about this antenna design is that absolutely no ground connection is required for excellent performance. I know what you are thinking, you must have a ground or counterpoise for an antenna to work. Well, I thought the same thing until I spend time in the field testing this design. We used it both with and without a ground and counterpoise and in both instances it worked great.

I did however design a ground connection into the matching device just in case you want to add a ground or counterpoise. The ground/counterpoise connection is accessed via the green wing nut on the side of the matching unit. Simply attach your wire to the ground connection and tighten the green wing nut.

This antenna can be hung in many different configurations. It can be hung as a sloper, an inverted L, hung in a straight line, zig-zagged, vertical, horizontal, etc. etc.

Antenna polarization is determined by your installation. Vertical, horizontal, or both can be accomplished.

By requiring no ground connection this antenna is just about the easiest antenna to install that I have ever used. Simply connect your coax to the matching  unit. Attach the end of the antenna wire to a high support and you are ready to get on the air and make contacts.

If you live in an apartment then this antenna will allow you to get on the air with little effort and no one will even know that you are on the air.

 Operate portable ?   This antenna can be deployed in a matter of seconds.


Important Note :  The antenna works best if the coax is at least 50 ft. long. Any coax length in excess of 50 ft. will also work just fine.



I do suggest using a choke balun or line isolator to keep rf away from you and your equiptment. I sell good quality, but inexpensive, choke baluns and line isolators on E-Bay if you need one.

The choke balun is E-bay item number  170660393454

The line isolator is E-Bay item number   170663366581

*Buy a choke balun or line isolator along with your " QSO-KING " antenna and we will ship the choke balun or line isolator free of charge!!! (free shipping to USA only)


I will include a set of installation instructions with each antenna order.

 Installing this antenna design is about as simple as it gets!


 I can state for certain is that this design outperformed my expectations. It is a very good antenna and it receives well and transmits equally as well.


We build these antennas ourselves and take pride in our workmanship. We have built many, many antennas over the years with no problems at all. The antenna wire is 14 gauge pure stranded copper that is quite flexible. The wire is double insulated and u.v. protected. We have used this type of wire for many years and it holds up quite well. One of our antennas has been up over 20 years now and still no breaks in the insulation. Even though insulated wire is more expensive, we use it because foliage will not detune the SWR on the insulated wire.


 We construct all of our antennas right here in our own shop. That gives us complete control over our quality of our products. I have been building antennas for over 35 years now and am an active Extra Class Ham myself. Every antenna is fully tested before it leaves our shop.
