Regarding KT-34XA anomalies:

Toward the end of KLM's production run of XA's, they
mistakenly shipped some antennas where the 16" length
capacitor tubes had a wall thickness of .058" instead of the
correct .049".  This error totally degraded the
performance of the antenna. Steve and Ward's Antenna
Comparison Report apparently used one of these bad antennas
in their testing, so the results are totally
non-representative of either a correctly functioning KLM or
M2 unit.
