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
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.
