can't talk to the vertical.... looks like you may be right about the concept.|
I can talk to the "standard" Sommer beams.... with one feed like I can "radiate" from 40 to 6 meters,,,,with one feedline.
I read in a Ham Radio article on receiver design, by Ulrich Rhode, in which he footnoted his article with a comment on his system, which AT THAT TIME
included a Sommer beam.
I concluded .....good enough for Ulrich...... good enough for me.
While stacks of different antennas might perform better ;( nice disclaimer) I would do it again....; or maybe a Big stepIR
