Since I can't seem to speak to anyone at Force 12 maybe someone on the
reflector can help.  Is it possible to use a C19XR as a mono-band beam for
either 10, 15, or 20 by not putting the elements on for the bands not wanted?
Supposedly it's a true 3 band beam with elements inter-laced so it seems
that might be possible.  I need a second antenna for the contest (CW) but
only plan to operate single band.

Hello Tony,

speaking from my experience with interlacing monobanders on one boom
I would guess that your plan could work on 20m, most probably also on 15m
but it might become critical on 10m.

From my experience the lower bands are less affected by the higher bands,
but the higher bands are more affected by the lower ones.
Therefore I would guess that the C19XR 10m elements would need some
readjustment when put up as a 10m monobander.

So if you are into 20m single band I would give it a try.

Hope that helps
