Down to the wire here. Phone in-hand ready to place the order for a 20 meter 
monobander. It's either the Force12 5 element or the M2 4 element 20M4DX. 
Both have 1/2 wave booms - 36ft.

I would assume the extra element on the F12 enhances performances a little 
in terms of f/b and gain curves. Figures are about the same on each antenna; 
23db f/b 7.5 or so dbd gain.

The F12 is about 200 bucks more and about 15lbs heavier. Both are well made 
antennas, but the question is; does the extra element buy much?
