I don't know either of you gentlemen, so pardon me for interrupting, but
could you please take the back-and-forth off the reflector and over to
private e-mail? I get a lot of excellent info from this reflector, but this
kind of thing is not what I want to read. Many thanks to you both.

Jerry: I requested your desires to them both a couple of times for the very
reasons you state and instead of private answers from them it comes out on
TT. I will defend my statements any time just as a matter of principal.
When many from all over the world (even limited antenna experience) tell me
my data is correct and repeatable by them, perhaps you can understand the
problems created by those (only the same 2) who continuously comment on
suggested concepts of mine and others they refuse to or are technically
unable to duplicate or understand.
Although technical advice is freely given it should withstand technical
examination by those with the skills to do it and I welcome it. I suggest
you direct your comments mostly to those with the technical deficiencies and
those who close their eyes to those who seriously abuse the right to question
technical concepts in a rational manner. You could have E-mailed me
privately but didn't so I haven't answered privately either. See how it
goes? If you have further comments do it privately.
TT is a great source of information that many contribute to freely. When I
have "proven antenna data" I will defend it fully at all times. If it's
valid it's certainly worth defending to whatever level needed. It often
required a lot of time and $$$ to develop. So what is the big sin? K7GCO
