Thanks for the new photos.

Please let us know if you make any improvements.

There is one thing I don't like about the Solid Signal Xtreme Signal HDB91X. The coax connector on the balun doesn't make good contact with the center conductor of the coax; it doesn't grasp the wire firmly. I noticed that when I was making resistance measurements of the driven element. I consider that a design defect. I inserted a short length of 18 gauge wire in the connector to make the measurement, which is the same gauge as the center conductor of RG6 coax.
Hi Rabbit,

Yes, I am listening to the whole thread here.

The 8 Bay idea has me very interested. Your pattern tells me that it could be the answer.

A while back, I saw a 4228 double stacked in this test, can't find it right now,.

AD Tech suggested the C4MAX. Have you done any testing with the C4MAX?

One advantage would be the lesser windload, at least that's what it appears to a layman like myself

Also, I guess my XG91 is a lifetime warranty, that's good. I may warranty it and save it for other uses.

The balun issue is interesting to me. in the automotive industry, that causes major issues. Also known as pin fit.
