Hi Tom,

Just for fun, today I tried to order from AES an MFJ-1792 vertical (yes, I 
spelled it correctly). AES no longer carries that antenna.

So, I called MFJ. After a long search, a phone call cut off (!), etc. they 
determined that it (and the MFJ-1793) are not in stock but maybe available 
in 4 or so weeks!

So, I hope that means they are still going to be available. Otherwise, it's 
all academic!
