    I think these models were adapted for 11 meters until the mid 70's, however demand was not great enough to sustain the production of those versions.
    The newer 10 /12 meter versions use shorter boom lengths.
    Several Op's I work on 6 meters have purchased the 5 element versions and updated them to the old specs.
    The old design 6m/6 element version I believe had a 33 ft. (?)boom.
    Those versions were called the "BOOMER" series.
    All the Best

    Surprised no one mentioned a Half Square antenna.
    Not hard to build and very good for DX contacts.

    I had a HGLJ-105CA for 10 Meters, but I was never able to get it up high, even to test.

    About 25' is the best I could do with it mounted static, using an old Arm Strong Rotor.

    It was heavy, well constructed, and barely reached 11 meters with a suitable working BW of 1.75 MHz when setup at the Broad Band dimensions.

    They were for real alright. I don't think anybody does work like Hy-Gain use to do. Manual in PDF file below.


    Below is the PDF file for my Eznec model using real dimensions I got from Hy-Gain to work 11 meters...including the physical beta matcher.

    Anybody wishing to get one of these old beams contact:
