Bob - Telex /Hy-gain Sells the parts to convert the TH6 to a TH7 and at one time
Sold a Kit to do just that.
So if a properly converted TH6 antenna is a TH7 then they would be equal
( conversion requires changes iin the placement of the driven Elements and the moving of one of the
10 meter elements. I looked at converting my TH6DXX to a TH7DX and in the end chose to leave it as a TH6
as the existing band width and gain figures meet my needs.
For further information I suggest you contact Telex Hy-gain for the conversion manual # 392S
