After getting the itch to look into the bigger booms, and talking to a lot of 
experts, I'm instead going add 20 feet to the tower and stack a couple of  
Tennadyne T6's to improve my station.  I'll give up the improvement in gain 
compared to a stacked set of 30 foot boomers to save the mechanical/financial 
headaches.  It won't be the loudest, or biggest, or baddest stacked array out 
there, but I won't be finding any of it's parts down the road as it rattles 
apart.  And I don't have to figure out how to rope the elements or pay 30 
percent more for a beefed up version of an antenna(s) advertised to already 
have 100MPH wind survivability. . After three years in ice, wind, blizzards, 
microbursts plus everything else you can find wx wise in Wyoming, 
T6 still looks brand new-  13 foot boom and all- 

>From what's been posted on TT lately, I wonder if bigger eally is better (or 
worth it)  in building a better DXer'mouse trap-
