I've given up trying to make the lumped element argument to hams.
Too hard to change belief systems.
Coax stub filters are firmly entrenched ham radio folklore,
regardless of whether they make engineering sense.
They are seldom if ever used for filtering in commercial HF radio systems.
BTW, the argument about the Q being "too high" goes away
with the realization of the difference between loaded and unloaded
Q. The harmonics property is only useful if you need to pass
the frequencies between the harmonics, which is not necessary
for ham use.
