But they are linear loaded so not full size beams.  Bill, W4AN, is looking
for a full size beam....where is Telrex when you need them?????  There might
be a few of their old full size beams around.  I saw a post of their big 10,
15, and 20 beams just last week...10 el 10, 8 el 15, 6 el 20.  N4RJ had the
3el 40 on the short boom a few years ago.
