       A little clarification. In our current tribander comparison report, we 
tested a Mosley PRO-77 (the PRO-77 was in my boneyard and was handy). Our 
comment was that the Mosley "underperformed" the competition. We heard that 
Mosely claimed that the PRO-77 was intended for 'export' and was a 
'listening' antenna so shouldn't have been used in our test. So we deferred 
and included the test data sets but didn't include it in any of the summaries 
or tables.  

    The PRO-77 is in a 1997 catalog that I have in my files and can be 
ordered so it's available and I'm sure there are hams that are transmitting 
with it. It was not "defective".

     We sent Mosley a nice letter offering to have them submit an antenna to 
us for testing but we never heard back from them.

     This year we tested a PRO-57 and it will be included in the upcoming 
second edition of the tribander comparison report. Also tested the C31XR and 
X-9. Details available at the Dayton Antenna Forum and reports available at 
the Champion Radio Products booth.
