Re: R: Cross Boom


     Have you ever measured the effect of a metallic boom?  The people who 
have  measured (not just theorized) would disagree.  The near field around 
an antenna is a very complex environment.  When I worked at an RF anechoic 
chamber we found all sort of things that seemed to defy theory.  It just 
meant there where things that our model wasn't accounting for.

     If you have data from an antenna range to support your claim I think 
this would be a great forum openly discuss the merits of it versus the 
existing data.
