He's also the founder and developer of the AN Wireless line of self supporting towers. Nobody can argue the quality of those towers, period. This is a start up and we should probably cut them some slack. A 1.5KW, brick on the key, 10:1, auto-tuner is going to cost north of $1K whether it's internal or external. The devices are rated for 300W output from 1 - 150MHz so I don't understand the power drop on 6m.
