What Natan told me is that they acknowledge that they had a problem with
some early production heavy duty yagi's because they discovered they were
using rivets that were too short to be reliable on some thicker wall
joints.  I guess they've also decided to use bolts on some brackets now as

    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
Force12 reflector traffic on

    In the case of the carping that goes on vis-a-vis contest sponsors on
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
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,
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.
