i have a 4 element 10-11m gizmotchy, id like to convert it to 6m use, I downloaded the 6m instructions that has all the dimensions for element length and element spacing but no mention of the gamma match dimensions, and if I go to the giz web site they have all the parts listed for the 10-11m gamma but non for the 6m gamma's,, I would imagine that the 6m gamma is quite a bit shorter overall than the 10-11m gamma? looks like it would be very easy to shorten everything up for 6m, just not sure what to do about the gamma's

Otherwise just contact Tom he is the owner and will help you with any questions I may be going down there for a day soon here so if you need anything let me know I can grab it while Im there. Weather is finally getting better for us so Ill be able to get my 4 element down and get my 6 element up soon here aswell. I also have to get my 4 elelment Gizmotchy 2 meter beam up in the air so I have quite a few projects on this springs menu.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
