Finally got my QST and read the ad. I had been following the exchange on
this reflector about the tribander tests with great interest, and remain
somewhat skeptical of the precision of the tests, but what really shocked
me was Mosley's allegation that K7LXC and N0AX set out to discredit Mosley
and other tribander manufacturers because they were secretly allied with
(implicitly, in the pay of) another antenna manufacturer.
In my opinion such charges, if unfounded, come perilously close to libel,
since Steve and Ward are scarcely public figures outside our little circle.
If Mosley can produce specifics, they should; if not, then they owe the
testers an apology.
(Forgive me if I'm a little hot about this, but I serve on a local
government body whose members have just been similarly attacked in the
local press as "obviously on the take." The smearing of people's
reputations is taken all too lightly these days!)
