Well .. just FYI .. my Mosely 5 el 20M monobander (46' Boom) would kick the
britches off of a brand new Sabre Log Periodic .. same power, approximately
same antenna height .. located about 3 miles apart. The Sabre was at Fort
Wainwright, Alaska, at the com center. The Mosely was at my home, in North
Pole....I installed both aerials! Multiple tests .. the LP N E V E R
came out on top. 73, Mark AA6DX
