For starters, I live in a HOA zero lot which actually has pretty lax rules. I'm allowed antennas on my house as long as they do not exceed 50 feet in the air. At first I tried the MFJ magloops and they worked wonders for years getting me numerous awards (WAS multiple bands) and they are awesome for digital and JT modes. We all know what the band conditions are like as we head into a period of low activity. For the most part, only the low bands have activity so I was looking for a low band solution that could fit in a tripod on my garage roof. I found a old Hi Q antenna at a hamfest in 2017 for a good price- I believe it is a 4/80 although the seller thought it was a 4/160, I have never been able to get it lower than 2.5 mhz. Well simply put I was getting signal reports that were significantly larger than the mag loops, typically my 40M signals heard on the east coast with the mag loops were were 52-55 on 40M. The Hi Q actually busted a couple of pileups with reports of 59 to 59+10 all with 100W on 40M! I actually shied away from using voice ssb because my loops were hopelessly lost in pileups. Now since installing the Hi Q antenna I am working more and more SSB with amazing results! Also on the plus side, while the MFJ mag loops work fine for basic radios with a power handling of up to 150 watts, the Hi Q antennas are legal limit power handling!
