Hi Kelly,

         Sorry...just trying to shine the light of a few facts
(i.e. modeling data, comparable contest results, etc) on all
the opinions flying around.  Actually the original question
was about operating from a small station versus a big gun
station, and had nothing to do with portable operations.

         As I said, verticals work very well for portable operations,
but they are not necessarily competitive with Yagi stacks,
as some have claimed.  I believe the gain figures I posted tell
the true story very concisely.
