The original antennas tested were new MFJ 7" Hamsticks 40m and 20m. The next antenna tested was ordered from another dealer was a 17m MFJ Hamstick.

All 3 antenna had "supposed" resonances considerably lower than they should have.

The dealer sent me a second AA-30 analyzer that read the same as the first,

I then  cut a 17m dipole to eliminate the the fact that the hamsticks were faulty. It to read low.

This second AA-30 unit was sent back to the dealer and they found it was also reading incorrectly.

They are shipping me a third unit after they insure it is operating correctly

I am sure both analyzers gave you correct measurements. That were your antennas which didn't function as you expected. Do not shoot the messenger.

My intent was to clarify what I had done.

I was not "shooting the messenger"
