I wonder if your read the whole thing Paul; if so, you would see what I
thought about the result. Please don't lecture on 10M dx....I'm there.

I am quite sure that you could work 10M with a wet noodle, thereby insisting
upon another 40dB of system link at the other end:-) The point is the fractal
quad works as well as a very good 2 el monobander, at a fraction of the
size...but I guess I said that.
