I have searched the Towertalk archives and read that log periodic antennas can
have the undesirable side effect of capturing too much RF; their broadbanded
capability results in all signals in the antenna's "passband" being presented
to the receiver. Strong out-of-band signals such as SW broadcast signals,
strong contest stations, etc. could lead to undesirable performance at the
receiver -- it is this issue that I am trying to quantify.
I am looking for solid factual experience from folks who have directly
witnessed how log periodic antennas can affect the front end of today's HF
transceivers. My ridge-top QTH will have a clear shot to the horizon in almost
all directions and I am trying to figure out if a log periodic will work for
me. The other option would be a multiband antenna like the Force 12 5BA or
