N0AX and I tested the R8 in our new HF vertical comparison test but don't
have any comparison with earlier versions. I would surmise that the relative
performances are going to be so close as to have negligible differences. I
think one of the improvements was a better balun which doesn't have anything
to do with its overall performance. The report is available from
http://www.championradio.com. BTW, the R8 did well.
