I consistently read where most Tower-talkians rate the performance of the Cushcraft XM-240 very favorably.

Cushcraft rates the XM-240 for only 1,500 watts. Does the lower power
rating pose any kind of problem when you run long QSO's of 1,500 watts of RTTY through it.

Secondly, does anyone know how well the 2-element Optibeam for 40meter/30
meter beam compares to the 2-element Cushcraft XM-240 both in performance and ruggedness.
