Ed, you didn't say what your design objective(s) is(are).  Do you want to 
talk to your brother in Texas, win Sweepstakes, make the honor roll, or win 
W6 in the ARRL DX Contest?  Oh, and of course ragchew with New Zealand.

You see what I'm asking, right?

There's a differeent answer for each of those possibile objectives, given 
your hardware.
