The C31XR is composed of 3 monobanders interlaced with
forward stagger. There are 3L on 20, 4L on 15, and 7L on 10M.
I used the same number of elements for each band except 10
where I expect some of the elements are primarily used as
open sleeves to decouple the 15 and 20 M elements.
I would use the same element spacing / boom length for the
monobanders as in the C31XR. The slight offsets along the
boom can be compensated as discussed by others previously.
This arrangement is less expensive than 4 - C31XR's but is
not as flexible since some of the middle antennas could not
rotate without hitting guy wires.
