Here's how he measured his contrast. He used the AEMC 813 metre.
Well now more desperation. Yes I did use the AEMC 813 , was recommended by forum members many of whom are noteworthy I might add. Funny how no one questions others about equipment used. Why the sudden interest in what I am using. Is the AEMC 813 not fit, or just when it applies to those with reasonable values ? No one EVER questions equipment or methodology when negative contrast values are posted, that is only appropriate for someone that posts positive numbers. Wouldn't you think that odd??
So, far Ekki is the only credible not biased professional , that is totally impartial . He still supports moisture as the root cause for SXRD and I believe he repeated this just recently , even asked others to lay off me , took a number of you to task on your comments.
When someone comes up with a credible reason for degradation based on credible data I guarantee Ekki will accept it . That's the difference I see between him and the many posting here.
Bring on the theories , all welcome , but until something more substantiated is realized, I'm going to hold my ground with someone I know is trustworthy.
