 Thanks for taking the time to respond.

 Please note that in my original post I explained why I was asking the
questions in a public forum - to stimulate debate over the various antenna

benefited from the many responses I've received from this forum.

 I'm very pleased with what I've learned by asking the question, and I was
NOT questioning the free market system - I was soliciting opinions, and it
