I had the same thing happen to me. I had 3 el beams for 10, 15, 20
on a 10 foot mast. I thought everything was fine until a ham moved
into my neighborhood with a Wilson System 36 Tribander. In signal
comparisons, he was louder than me on all three bands. I took down
the stack and put up a tribander. Problem solved.
