NON-CONTESTERS GET A SPECIAL DISPENSATION FROM HAVING THEIR FREQ
THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE REASON FOR JUMPING ONTO THE FREQ OF A
NON-CONTESTER IS WHEN YOU JUST KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE BLESSED WITH
SOME SPECIAL SORT OF INTELLECTUALLY STIMULATING CONDEMNATION.
AS FER FREQS BEING NON-SACRED, I WAS REFERRING TO FREQS THAT
MIGHT BE DESIGNATED AS SACRED BY ANOTHER CONTESTER'S USAGE.
"THEY" AND "THEIR FREQ" ARE FAIR GAME FOR "GRAB AWAY".

I take exception to your "defense" of the C3 antenna on this forum;
not because those wrongly accused shouldn't be given equal time,
but because you are clearly taking that position not as an advocate,
but as an advertiser. I have NOT seen anyone doubt the published
gain figures. In fact, I see the "critics" actually using them as
a base upon which to equate the C3 with a 2 element yagi, in terms
of gain. I also wonder why you imply that there is just ONE guy taking
this position, when, in fact, it has been shared by several. And
your total lack of any real numbers really shoots your "better than
a 2 element yagi" point down. Is ANYONE supposed to be swayed by such
nebulous comments as "there's a lot going on?" Really, is that the
best you can do? I have reread some of the comments of the "critics"
and I honestly don't see any BASHING, just statements of preferences
or conclusions on design. I don't see any yelling and screaming or
outrageous BS. If you have something worthwhile, factual, revealing,
or otherwise carrying great importance, PLEASE share it. Otherwise,
please don't use this forum to promote your products with catchy phrases
or the equivalent of a press release.
PS...I also note that even your NAME is Force12, as is your MBX....gee whiz.
