    One of my facebook friends posted that Jo Gunn is no longer in business. I looked and it looks like their website is gone. Anybody else know anything?

    I don't know about the company being in or out of business, but when it comes to well built, well designed, efficient antenna designs, Jo Gunn antennas were definitely
    well built.

    YUP! You could pretty much smell it every time you picked up a Jo Gunn manual or brochure.
