Thanks for your comments, Norm.  Also, thanks for a fine quad that is still 
available today!!  I bought a Cubex 4 element, 5 band quad a couple of years 
ago, and have had extremely good results with it.  I wanted something 
reasonably simple to maintain, with no traps, reasonable coverage of all 5 
bands 20 - 10m and one that would survive our Oklahoma winds.  I found all 
that in the Cubex quad and more.  My quad recently survived the collapse of 
my crankup, telescoped within itself from 65' to 22' in seconds, with no 
damage to the quad!!  That's quality parts.  I have no monetary interest in 
Cubex, although if I were an engineer like Norm, we might be talking 
seriously about his pending sale,  I just appreciate a good, American 
company that delivers a fine product and gives excellent support for it.  We 
will miss the likes of Lightning Bolt Quads, but let's support those vendors 
we do have left!  We are fortunate to have so many fine antenna companies in 
one country and whatever our preferences, a good firm can be found to fill 
it.  If you still want a good quad, call Norm.  Off the soapbox, hi.
73 all,
Don, WB5HAK
