Hi Earl,

Not to reflect on you, since you didn't use this nonsense as an 
example of proving an antenna works, but this stuff is a total waste 
of time even if TH6's did beat Yuri.

Nearly anyone would (or should as I am sure you do) understand 
the antenna has little to do with any of this, as long as it works 
reasonably well. We have no idea how much power someone 
actually runs, how propagation is, or if the claims are even true.

The bottom line is when the claims get outrageous, you know the 
guy is full of bologna.

73, Tom W8JI
