    I am contemplating an antenna farm utilizing Telrex yagis for 20-10 meters. 
I have never owned one and only know about them through their reputation. Afte 
hearing some of their advertised gain figures, I have to wonder if they are as 
good as their legend would lead one to believe. I was looking at a 20M646-6el 
20 on a 46' boom and the advertised gain was 14DB, when in fact it should 
probably be somewhere in the 8-9db range. They also appear in some cases to use 
an extra element or so given a particular boom length i.e., the 20m646 uses 6 
elements on a boom length that would typically have 5 based on modeling.Can 
someone enlighten me as to Telrexs' claims? I am also looking for some of their 
antennas if anyone out there has any for sale at a decent price. Thanks es 73,

                              Steve, WD8NPL
