I'm pretty sure that once he gets the first one working he plans to build a 
second one and stack the two.  This was what Stan told me a couple years

Safe to assume Stan's purpose is DX contests.  After he stacks two of them, 
he can feed the lower one by itself when he wants to work the USA.

Stan, buddy, get on here and defend yourself!  I, for one, say "go for it!"
