Art, I'm sorry that you feel slighted.  Researchers receive unsolicited ideas and questions from people such as yourself on a regular basis.  Sometimes a good idea gets away.  Prove us wrong.  Research isn't all good ideas...I have no problem being wrong and learning from it.

Art, there is a lesson to be learned here.  I would have thought you would have gotten it by now.  All of the negative comments about your antenna have all been directed toward performance.  One of the major factors of performance is antenna gain.  By your own admission you have not tested it for gain or compared it to any other antenna.  This is a very simple test and can be easily performed by the average ham with accuracy sufficient for most ham use.  Most people will look at your design and by inspection say that the gain will be a huge negative number and almost any other antenna will beat it.  You offer no data to counter that speculation.  I said DATA, not theories of operation which can't be tested.  As a matter of fact usually when someone addresses this subject directly, you claim "insult" and go away.  So if you expect to interest anyone in your antenna, you have to provide some kind of data to show that it is useful for something.  Don't expect others to do this testing for you.
