A cautious word of defense on Mosley...the PRO series was definitely not the 
top performing tribander in the tests ( but they are 
built like tanks (that also means they are very heavy antennas) and do stand up 
to the elements, particularly ice loading.  The Mosleys would probably also 
benefit from decoupling the feedline shield with common-mode chokes (ferrite or 
coiled-coax) although the manual I saw during the test said not to use a balun 
for some reason - that may have changed.

I agree with whoever said to avoid quads in Alaska - unless you like rebuilding 
antennas :-)

Check with other KL7s in your area as to what they have put up that makes it 
through the storms and gives adequate performance on the air.  In extreme 
weather environments, there are more requirements than just gain to worry about.
