If $$x\to ix$$ in the recurrence relation for the continuous q-Hermite polynomials of Rogers, the resulting polynomials are orthogonal on the real line with respect to a positive measure when $$q>1$$. Some explicit orthogonality relations are given here. The moment problem is indeterminate so there are many positive measures which can be used. One of these orthogonalities led to a new q-beta integral with four free parameters.
