The OPEK HCS-100 is a 26-31MHz high-gain 3-section commercial-grade 10/11m fibreglass omnidirectional base antenna. It is water- and weatherproof, a must in saltwater areas.
The durable construction can withstand 90 mph (40m/sec.) wind speed Signifi cantly reduced precipitate static and lower background noise. Excellent insulation; less interference from rain; sleet and snow.
Opek HSC-100 A high quality wide-band base antenna, covering all CB bands plus the 10m Amateur band.
Similar to the Solarcon A99 but the build quality is far superior, the quality of the finish reminds me of Diamond Amateur antenna.
Supplied in 3 sections that simply screw together.
The top section has an adjustable internal whip, allowing you to tune the antenna from 26-31MHz.

Before you begin installation, read this manual and the separate recommendation information sheet. For your safety and convenience, plan each step of the installation in advance.
1. Refer to drawing (rear side of this instruction). Loosen the set screw (part #17) using the supplied “L” wrench ( part #15) , and slide the radiator element (part #14) into the radiator joint (part #4) to correct length of each frequency showing the adjustment chart, then tighten the set screw (part #17).
2. Screw up the bottom joint of upper section (part #3) tightly onto the top joint of center section (part #4).
3. Screw up the bottom joint of center section (part #6) tightly onto the top joint of bottom section (part #7).
4. Secure the mounting bracket (part #13) to mounting pole (not included) in desired location using U-Bolts ( part #12), locking nuts (part #10), locking washers (part #11). Tighten it securely with wrench (not included).
5. Run the cable from radio to the bottom of mounting bracket (part #13) and screw PL-259 on cable end tightly onto SO-239 connector at the bottom of mounting bracket (part #13).
Fine-Tuning Procedure (After Roof-Mounting)
1. Check SWR at low and high of frequency band ( for example ch.1 & ch.40 of the CB band ).
2. If the SWR is better at low ( ch.1-CB ) than at high ( ch.40-CB ), Raise up the twin tuning-rings by 1/4~1/2 turn.
3. If the SWR is better at high ( ch.40-CB ) than at low ( ch.1-CB ). Lower down the twin tuning-rings by 1/4~1/2 turn. Repeat the step 2 & 3 till the SWR is nearly the same in the low band and the high band of frequency and the best performance will be obtained. Then tighten the twin tuning-rings against each other.
