The 1999 Dayton Convention, where the test results were 
first presented, was a long time ago. I don't have copies of 
the emails exchanged between Ward and myself, but I think he 
and I pretty much agreed that their sample of the XA was 
defective. Consider my Towertalk posting in June of 1999. It 
did not draw any flak from Ward or Steve at the time. If 
they have any contrary opinions, maybe they will speak up
