I've no problem with that....!!!  My problem is with taking EXISTING the concept of   ONE (mono)   and  MORE than one
(multi)...Running them together to create yet
another OLD concept...i.e.  a CONTRADICTION..

   Also, neither the device, or the concept are new....People have been
putting more than one antenna on a single support structure (boom, frame,
spider etc) for a very long time...

 Hmm!  I can see the need to differentiate..but I think your choice
of  "multi-monoband" is unfortunate.

not used.


   BTW I have absolutely NO beef with Force 12 antennae..In fact I'm a long
time admirer
of both the design, and the quality of the product.

 You already have...


    same difference.....
