    The Mosley Pro? Good grief.

    As far as the Force 12 antennas, you can use their 'net gain' figures to 
compare them with the antennas in our report since their figures basically 
corollate to our findings. 

    For other antennas (i.e., KT36XA), the figures are probably suspect since 
they don't use our protocol for their published gain figures whereas F12 
basically does.
