UPDATE - NOVEMBER 21, 2020
Testing for the SEARCHER II is done.
I am in the process of trying to find someone to build these antennas for me.
My work schedule is maxed out, I just do not have the time (right now anyway)
to do this myself.
I am hoping to be moving forward with this project by the first of 2021
if I can find someone to build and assemble the antenna they will be available for purchase.
If I cannot find a trustworthy professional to build them the way I want them, I will not continue this project, They MUST be built to my satisfaction.
So I am hoping for the best, Time will tell.....
I am Hopeful they will be available in early 2021
I have posted all the test results and charts so anyone that wanted to could see the progress, since testing is done I will very soon remove all the testing information and just leave what I believe is the critical results of the testing.
