Fellow Radio Operators,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as Fred (K6AQI) and to thank you for your interest in the Spider Antenna. I hope that our presentation will provide information and answer questions that you may have.

As the designer and patent holder of the Spider Antenna, I would like to give you a little history on how and why the Spider Antenna originated.   I was licensed as W9OWX in 1933, and have been very active in designing and building antennas, especially for mobile applications.

In 1979 when the first "No Tune" solid state transceivers were coming on the market;the only mobile antenna out there was of the single resonator, center loaded, whip type.   That required you to stop your vehicle, change the resonator or coil, and retune the antenna every time you wanted to listen or operate on a different frequency band.   Discovering this hassle; my wife Lillian, encouraged me to develop an antenna to eliminate these problems and enhance the advantages of the new transceivers.

Instead of a single resonator with a telescoping whip, the Spider Antenna uses four (or as many as seven) resonators (one for each frequency band) with adjustable tuning sleeves.   The resonator size and configuration were developed so there isn't a detuning interaction between the resonators.   The tuning sleeve and the Spider Antenna are both patented by me, Clarence Fredrick Shmitka, with the U.S. Patent Office.

My wife Lillian, and family are very involved in all phases of the Spider Antenna business; from office work to hands-on manufacturing.   All of our staff will be helpful to talk to if you call for technical information.

Please remember that with this, made in the U.S.A. antenna, the quality and performance linger long after the price has faded.

73, K6AQI
