You really don't need any switching. Split the measurement dimensions between 
CW and MID and the resonance will be around 7.070 with the 2.0:1 will be 7.000 
and 7.250. That should be enough for just about anything but the SPAM guys. 

And definitely go for the CC over the F12. I just talked to W6ISO yesterday and 
he was lamenting how disappointed he was with the 2L 40 on his C4XL. I replaced 
a 4L KLM (another linear loaded 40M yagi) years ago with the 402CD and didn't 
feel I gave anything away performance-wise.
