No question. But you miss the point. For Dave, F/B probably isn't
important. But that's not the discussion.
I've had knowledgable friends put up close spaced antennas on the same
mast and think their antennas were working. Only to find out they were
totally screwed up by the other antenna upon further analysis.
My only suggestion is to offer quantitative suggestions and not subjective
ones. K7LXC's paper on tribander comparisons in my mind is the sort of
thing people should be paying attention to. Not the last paragraph in a
CQ Magazine product review where the author tells us all how he worked 5
DL's with 100w in less than an hour.
