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)
