Just because there are 1100 of us interested in this sort of thing
doesn't mean that the manufacturer is a subscriber. In the case of the F12
factory and N6BT, they're not TT subscribers. I'm not sure Tom even reads the
Force12 reflector traffic on qth.com.
In the case of the carping that goes on vis-a-vis contest sponsors on the
cq-contest reflector, NONE of the sponsors subscribe to the reflector so
discussions go on for days that have NO impact on the topic. While TowerTalk
used to have Hy-Gain and some other subscribers including Steve Davis, the
President of Cushcraft, none of them are current subscribers.
If you want to pose a question or make a statement to a manufacturer, you
need to contact them directly. If you report back to TT what you found, I'm
sure there are lots of us interested in hearing what you found out.
