    True. It's 3 half-wave dipoles (10, 15 & 20) bent into a (fairly) compact 
design. As a dipole, it doesn't need radials.

     This isn't a claim - it's the factory spec.

      It'll run circles around any trapped vertical. It's broader, will take 
more power and is MORE EFFICIENT than they are.

       If I was in a situation where I needed a vertical, I'd put one up in a 
New York minute. 

      You'd have to talk to the factory about the height question.
