I feed each loop with a 72 ohm matching stub which terminates in a 5 band
remote coax switch mounted on the tower. No balun and it's 1-1 SWR at the
design frequency for each band. Tying all feed points together is just like
putting up 5 dipoles and tying all feed points together, it can be done but
does not work well.
