When I visit that address, all I can find are pages of links to sellers. I can't find a link to an antenna selection page. Does that site still offer a reception analysis function?

Looks like either someone didn't renew their domain registration and it's been taken over by a cyber-squatter or it's been hijacked.

I thought it was maintained by some big-time industry trade group, so it is hard to imagine that they might have inadvertently let their ownership/control of it lapse.

Oops. I had just set up a new browser and entered .com instead of .org.

Would a moderator please make this thread disappear?

Well, I entered it yesterday as .org (checked my browser history) and definitely got the "wrong" website, same as you described. It was different than the ".com" site that loads this morning.

There was definitely something screwy going on yesterday over there... I don't think you were imagining things or mis-typed the web address.

Have not been to http://www.antennaweb.org/ in a long time, because at least for me, it is pretty useless.

Site looks normal to me.
