I think this has been covered here before, but I would appreciate hearing 
comments about the Cushcraft R7000, especially in these areas:

Power Handling?  Will this antenna RELIABLY withstand 1500 watts into 
it?  I seem to recall horror stories about this antenna blowin up with 
more than 700 -900 watts of power.  If this is in fact the case, it won't 
work for me.  I want to use it for a second antenna in rtty contesting, 
and need it to be able to handle the load without frying.

Ground Mount or Elevated?  What is your experience here?  I can easily do 
either, would like the optimum set up?  

SWR Bandwidth:  What does it look like?  Is it really flat on each band, 
or how close to their specs is it?  Can the center point be adjusted, or 
is it fixed on each band?

Comparisons:  Anyone have comparison information with this antenna to a 
Hygain, Gap or other multi band vertical? 

Overall impressions?  How satisfied are you with it?  Is there a better 
multiband vertical out there?  Any commments would be appreciated.
