    Where did you get those figures? (I'm sorry but am in Finland and can't 
look any info up.)

    If they are published manufacturer's figures, would you also be interested 
in a historical bridge I just happen to have for sale? 

    The ONLY source of on-the-air comparison info is in our tribander 
comparison report available from 

    That should give you all the info you need to decide unless you have some 
questions that owners can answer anecdotally. 

    I'm sorry but splitting tenths of dB's to evaluate antenna performance 
ain't the whole story.
