Hi, Bob --
My first rotatable, gain antenna was a commercially available quad; might
even have been a Gem Quad. It was loud but didn't seem to have much F/B.
Also spent a whole Saturday trying to tune it; finally gave up but it still
worked great. I am now a yagi user, though.

Okay, since you broadcast it around the world.... Yes, you are correct,
sir. TOWER TECH has tower tools and equipment that you'll need if you ever
work on a tower. Email me your postal address and I'll be happy to send you
the latest catalog. An SASE to TOWER TECH, Box 572, Woodinville, WA, 98072,
will get you one also.
No, there is no web page yet but let's say that's it's "under
construction". BTW, this is going to be one doozey of a web page. There
will be an announcement when it's ready for visits.
While I am always ready to give advice when asked (and sometimes when
not), my intentions aren't entirely altrustic. TOWER TECH is a 'for profit'
business and I would appreciate any business that you would care to do with
73 and thanks for your interest, Steve K7LXC
