While at Ascension Island, Jan K4QD and I discussed antennas and what would be 
the ideal antenna for us during the low sun spot cycle.  We came up with a 3 
element beam for 20-17-15 meters.  Keeping in mind the weight.  Most airlines 
now limited you to 2 bags @ 50 pounds.  

Looking around I see Force-12 makes one (DXer/S) but it is too costly and heavy 
to carry around.  We thought of the Cushcraft A3S.  What do we need to do to 
modify this antenna from 10-15-20 to 15-17-20 ????  Any ideas?  Can if be down 
using same hardware?

With a antenna for these bands we can also carry the Force-12 Sigma-5 and 
vertical dipole for 30/40 meters.
