Delete my previous message.  I stand corrected.  Hy-gain has lowered their
pricing from just a few weeks ago and do, in fact, have factory direct
pricing 22% lower than their published prices last month when I placed my
orders for 9 antennas.  Sure was nice they kept it secret until after my
order was in.

Their prices are now 6% better than the best dealer pricing previously
given to me.

Oh well. This should be good for antenna growth in our back yards.  Will
also increase competition with other antenna makers (M2, Force12,
CushCraft, etc.)
