I also don't understand the secrecy.  It seems to me that anyone who 
seriously wanted to make a bunch of knockoffs abroad could buy one from MFJ 
and reverse engineer it.  it would be harder if they used custom chips but 
why not simply get patents for anything proprietary?

I once heard GAP is the same way--I understand it's hard to get answers from 
them about how their antennas work, which makes no sense.  Anyone could just 
buy a gap antenna and cut it open to find out what they do inside and 
contract out to Taiwan et al. and their secrecy would be to no avail.

There's a new analyzer on the market from Japan that I have seen advertized 
in QST recently--not Autek but something else--but the name of the mfr. I 
can't remember off hand.
