Hi, Tom --

    I used to be anti-add-on because of the cost and performance (negative
gain compared to a full-sized dipole) but users and a recent installation
have convinced me that it's probably worth it.

    The A3 w/add-on was A-B'ed to a trap dipole at the same height and the
rotatable dipole was frequently stronger. Add the ability to rotate it and
null noise off the ends and you've got a worthwhile investment.
