Hi, Bill --

      Hope you're enjoying it.

      The *real* story is contained in N0AX's and my tribander comparison 
report. We tested the X9, TH11, C3 and more for a total of around ten or 
eleven tribanders on the air. We presented the data at Dayton a couple of 
weeks ago.
      The report is over 90 pages long and consists of protocol, data sets 
and summaries. It's very interesting reading and is available at Champion 
Radio Products website - www.championradio.com. 

      While I'm updating the information on the website to reflect the second 
edition of testing, anyone ordering the report automatically gets the latest 
version. It's seventeen bucks.

       The X9 turned out to be a pretty good antenna.

Cheers,   Steve   K7LXC
