No doubt about it!  This is not a small undertaking.  I'd consider pre-ordering 
the book if it would help, and I bet a lot of others would pre order too.  What 
else can I do to help?  If they were ready to test tomorrow, I'd have my 
antenna of choice send to them to use for the test, then they can ship it back 
to me when done so I can put it on the tower, but I don't think they are quite 
ready yet. :-) 

If it were possible to get a hold of all antennas at the same time, I think a 
good way to do this would be to do it the week of field day with one of these 
bigger clubs that puts up several towers for their op.  The test antennas could 
be on portable towers in a big field, all pointed the same way.  Close range 
and further range testing could be done at the same time (ie east coast or even 
EU).  While we're dreaming here, maybe I can plan a money tree....

So would I, but this is a LOT of work and there's a LOT of expense. You've got 
to obtain the antennas, find a suitable test range, set up instrumentation, rig 
the antennas one at a time in precisely the same conditions, take the data, 
take it again, then that that antenna down, pack it up, return it from where 
you got it, and do it all over again.

How many dollars and how many weeks are you willing to contribute to the
