Right! It's interesting to note that a Rhombic or V-Beam would be
allowed, since they are single-element, but a OWA dipole would not.
Which raises an interesting question -- is a multi-band dipole (ie one
with elements for one or more of 160, 80, 40) fed with the same feedline
disqualifying? It certainly has multiple elements....
