The dual discrete q-ultraspherical polynomials Dn(s)(μ(x;s)|q) correspond to indeterminate moment problem and, therefore, have one-parameter family of extremal orthogonality relations. It is shown that special cases of dual discrete q-ultraspherical polynomials Dn(s)(μ(x;s)|q), when s = q-1 and s = q, are directly connected with q-1-Hermite polynomials. These connections are given in an explicit form. Using these relations, all extremal orthogonality relations for these special cases of polynomials Dn(s)(μ(x;s)|q) are found.

Key words: q-orthogonal polynomials; dual discrete q-ultraspherical polynomials; q-1-Hermite polynomials; orthogonality relation.
