Nope, didn't miss the point....... As someone said in an earlier post, the New products ads probably sit in an in-basket and are used for fillers in QST, with out reading. 
I think its up to the Elmers to clue the newbees in.... and, yes, that's exactly what is going on with the thread.  I was just trying to put the thread to, shall I say, a "Humorus" death so we could get back on subject.

  Jake Jake Jake -- you are missing the point, methinks... As a Life Member of 
  the League, I resent when they get suckered into the latest scam . usually 
  has to do with aerials .. I can go on and on here and tell stories of the 
  famous center connectors epoxy encapsulated, fillled with electronic 
  trash"  -REALLY .. and some resistors that made the SWR bridge happy .. a 
  famous electronic store I worked for (manager) for a short time had those in 
  stock ..  those in-the-know tee-heed and guffawed...  and, they were 
  discussed in Q Street... and, ultimately exposed as pure BS --- There are 
  hundreds of antenna devices floating around the Internet, gams of them on 
  eBay ..  but .. a few  have SOME  merit  -- and, in the sixties, we used to 
  love to talk around town on 75M / 4ØM on Mazda 5ØØW lamps .. connected to 
  our amps!   Nuttin' gnu here!   But, a spaghetti feed of aerial wires that 
  somewhat resonate .. hmmm .. saw the articles, shall now go read..... a ham 
  taking the time and effort to present his/her ideas and perceived results is 
  swell .. as long as not not snake oil!  AND-- as to being on topic, aerials 
  are what go on our     TOWERS!  =];?}  HIHI..  es 73 .. Mark  AA6DX
