I agree with Pete's coments.  If K7LXC and N0AX were out to discredit
anyone (ridiculous!) , why not trash the Bencher Skyhawk which is in
direct competition with some of the Force 12 models.  I've used some of
the older Mosley antennas and they always seemed to perform fine.  Some
of the guys in the area bought some of the newer designs and most
pretty much felt that the Mosley antennas were a little "down" in
performance from the TH6/7.  One of the fellows actually went back to
his TH7 & sold the Mosley (think it was a PRO-67).  Perhaps trying to
add all the WARC bands screwed up what might be a real good antenna.
Just my 2 cents...
