Why should these people supply their intellectual property for free?  If they 
want the designs - they should pay for it.  If you want to create the 
easy-to-put-together and stay-up, you should either pay for the antenna; pay 
for the design or build your own.  

How typical.......just like the hams that ask a person regarding an item at a 
hamfest, but never buy.  Then when the guy selling leaves the stuff in a 
dumpster - watch the hams jump off their scooters and go "dumpster-diving"......
