I got mine set for low phone and got a flat 1:1 from 28.100 till 28.600. 
Then is 1.5 till 29.000. It´s 33ft high and I did install the BN86 balun. It 
has been up there for almost 13 years working like a champ. As an advice I 
would suggest you to install such a kind of boom support cable although 
manual says you won´t need it. I found that boom tend to bend a litte after 
a few inches of snow and didn´t come back to its original position (this 
could be worse if you attach any kind of balun).
My congratulations, you have bought a great antenna. 73s
