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
