I can think of one reason to not use a single run and switch: it will
prohibit you from using more than one antenna at a time, such as for SO2R
contesting or for a mult station. Even if you're not into contesting, you
may at some point find it handy to keep an ear on other bands than the one
Whether that's a reason that matters is entirely up to you, Paul.
If it doesn't, I'm with Howard -- go for the single run of the good stuff.
