I can't disagree that much. I've worked a dozen or so countries with mine
on 160, but that was probably in spite of the Voyage, not because of
it. 20 is much the same.
I use mine as a backup for 40-80. When the wires go down and the tower
needs to be lowered, it at least keeps me on the air.

The Voyager seems to be indestructible, but when it comes time to replace
it, the Sigma does seem decent.
