I'd have to disagree with you here - I'd say the KLM KT-34XA is the most
unnecessarily complicated antenna around.
The Sommer antennas may have a lot of parts, but the are beautifully
I have read at least one review of the Sommer antenna, and it was quite good
What scientific measurements do you base your inference that they are not
Surely you are not slamming them based solely on the logic that "more people
would be using it". Surely you are more responsible than that!
They are EXPENSIVE antennas, and that is one reason which could easily

You should also include a disclaimer that you sell Force12 antennas.
Have a great day.
