It's amazing to me, how folks who never owned one of these have strong opinions 
about how their support is critical.   

FACT:   I owned a 3 el.   It went together and up in under 2 hours.  Worked 
fine through VT winter.   Never had a problem.   Wouldn't have another yagi.  
Communications with the firm was prompt and helpful, when needed.   Around 
Dayton and Visalia time, the Mertel's are at the show, so things can be slow 
then, but otherwise most helpful.  
FACT:   The design itself is quite simple.   And, it's efficient.  

FACT:   Fixed element positions WILL compromise the f/b somewhat, somewhere.   
If that compromise is on what?   Propagation generally provides the 
f/b on the upper's fwd gain you need.   

I won't waste bandwidth skewering Force 12.   They've fallen on their own 
sword,  which apparently was assembled with pop-rivets and is just a tad wobbly 


See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions
