I am currently limited to a G5RV for HF following the demise of a miniquad I
was using.  I am looking at getting a Mosley 2 element tribander, but I
can't get it up very high right now-maybe 25 feet or so.

I know that the low height will hurt performance, especially on 20 meters.
Given the low height of the antenna, would it still be a much better
performer than the G5RV.  The G5RV isn't up that high either, but has done
nicely on 30m, 40m and 80m where I have been using it the last few years.

I guess I am just trying to figure out whether the 2 element beam would be
worth the extra money, or if it would be pretty similar to a G5RV, given the
low height it would be at.
