> More power to him, but my understanding from gurus such as
N6BV and W3LPL is that he would be better off with a stack
of 3 element Yagi's. Possibly even a stack of 2 element Yagi's
would be better than one 5 element most of the time.
Anyone remember the cover of QST with W6VSS's 5 element 40 meter
beam (circa 1963)? W6VSS told me it was really hard to keep
the thing up.
I totally agree. A 2 or 3L stack will give almost the same performance
at significantly lower cost.
But I wouldn't mind operating this Elephant Gun sometime!
