I book marked it too, glad I'm not the only one needing such a tool.Try this link for a conversion calculator. Hope the link works.
I have it bookmarked in several areas of my bookmarks. I have so many bookmarks I had to make folders and name them to categorize them. Guess I better make a Technology folder and start cleaning house. I laugh because my CB folder is so full of bookmarks I had to make a couple more folders within that folder to start cleaning the CB folder. Lot of good Info on the Information Highway.

What would one think the real world power handling would be?
.... 3/4 was just a guesstimate by looking at the picture you posted. Damn.... I went to the picture and completely missed the part where you put the measurements.. I dropped the ball buddy!5/8 " above and yes it is the bottom section of the 2pc. top element and just above the hub. Where did you get 3/4" from? Get your antennas and it is self explanatory.
Good info, thank you. Once they're here will report back on the build quality and drain hole.As this is a direct feed design that does not require a special matching circuit, this antenna should be able to handle whatever the components of the antenna system itself can handle. The biggest weakness when it comes to power handling is likely either the coax feeding it or the connector said coax attaches to. So real world figures are likely much higher than is listed by the manufacturers, unless they used some seriously subpar components...
From what I see in the ads...I think the Workman is a Sirio. Don't know about the drain holes in these, but it is a very good to consideration.You never know maybe Workman might have added the drain hole later on.
