This is a case of where "engineering mentality" and "first-hand,
practical experiences" are colliding.
When I was selling these for HRO, a gentleman brought his back one
day. "This can NOT work," he exclaimed. "It is designed all wrong ...
" I refunded his money, and bought the antenna for a backup for
myself. I am using it to this day, successfully working the FM sats
with 1.5-to-2.5W TX power.
So much for the Arrow, indeed ... (grin)
