    VK7HH already did a build and review of the DX Commander (see post #34), and it is on the main page of QRZed. Right now.

    Perhaps you may wish to add a comment on that thread after your build of a DX Commander. Not sure we need to see another video on the main page of Zed on the same product. MO.

    Well you should, and fast forward to the end where he says it's to expensive and you should buy from Cal.

    ...but you agree, I did NOT have to.

    No offense intended. My use of Peanut Gallery pertained to everyone who did not participate in the build, including me. I made no point of characterization of anything, just that folks speculating on how Callum would react really have no idea, how could they???.....for all we know he could be asking Sean to put these videos out to drive customers his way.....

    Now, for what it is worth, I am going outside to build my DX Commander Classic before it gets too dang hot.

    Why should he?

    Please don't tell us we 'should' see this --or any video for that matter. It is disrespectful to take away our freedom of choice . 'Could' not 'should'. No one should be shamed to do anything. Respect choice.

    It is up to us, separately (as members), as an audience.

    The title of a video is the hook that informs the viewer on the subject. We looked at the video BECAUSE it says: 'DX Commander'. It is not a 'DX Commander'.

    I LIKE W9FFF's video. I hope he does more antenna videos.

    But I would NOT have looked if it didn't say 'DX Commander'. So it does, by title, conflate a home made fan monopole with an extant product.

    Sorry Chip, it was a recommendation prior to making assumptions on the topic matter. It has zero to do with infringing on anyone's freedom, I am not forcing anyone. It is a suggestion. I'm sorry if you think a post here is manipulating your freedom.

    This thread is the shark.

    Why would anyone need to watch a video to intelligently speak of its content? Title is topic. Sum of the video is the content. Woe is me.

    I'm missing the relevance of "Hexbeam" to this. Moxon G6XN described the antenna long before anyone tried to commercialise it.

    There we go, in a thread on this very forum the man himself said "This is purely an accidental product! But I really do encourage people to make their own. Many have done so".
