    Mosley seems to make a pretty good product. Heard a lot of good things about them. I'm looking into them now.

    I will second the Signal Engineering Quads. I ran a 2L superhawk in my early days on 11mtrs. but it worked great on 10 -12 mtrs. with very minimal adjustments on a tuner. When i sold it, the guy that bought it ran it on the bowl for a number of years out of vegas. But i still like the Super Scanners

    I'm glad you fellas like your Signal Engineering antennas. I've built several quads over the years and they've always done well.

    Signal Engineering does have some flat-out wrong info about the way antennas work in general though (such as no f/b on a directional antenna with no reflector!), so take their "theory" with a grain of salt.

    Forget the theory. I am going off Real World experience. My Signal Engineering 6 element quads WORKS...

    Well, that's good, and it should. It's hard to make a quad or delta loop not work, honestly. They're great antennas, and if you don't mind dealing with a skyhook that has 3 dimensions, they're hard to beat.

    I did email them (politely) about the misinformation on their website a couple of years ago. Never heard back from them and they haven't changed it.

    It's been NINE YEARS since he posted that. Do you look at dates? You have made similar replies in the past without looking at thread dates. In fact ALL you replies have been in regards to long sold items.

    The date and time sent can be found near the bottom of each post. It is in light grey and a little difficult to see.
