Does anyone know if the element spacing dimensions
shown in the manual are correct?  Have there been any
design changes that maybe did not get into my manual? 

This is a new antenna, picked it up at the factory a
few days ago after waiting 3 weeks.  

Reflector to driven element is correct
Reflector to first director is 2" too short
Reflector to second director is 2" too long

The boom is assembled as marked: a to a, b to b, etc
and all the screw holes lined up easily.

The outer section of the second director was also the
wrong length:  33" instead of the  30.25.  This is
easy to fix, I'll just trim it.  But the boom problem
is not trivial to fix.
