There is a hard rule in life that you must accept before you go any farther.
'You cannot have your cake and eat it to.' You just can't get light,
inexpensive, and efficient plus power handling in one package. The thing you
have going for you is you will be the DX so you will be the one in demand.
If you can sacrifice the power the TH3jr will be just fine. It has some
gain/directivity and bandwidth and you can't beat the price...
Just my -2cents worth

let's put the disclaimer first: this antenna gonna be used for WW RTTY
some Caribbean country.
Now back to the question.
I am looking for relatively light and inexpensive tribander to take with
I did some researche in internet and found that there are not many of
Force-12 C-3SS is "mucho expensivo" - almost 2 times more than Cushcraft
or Hy-Gain TH-3JRS. I also do not believe in miracles of mini antennas,
Cushcraft MA-5B or Mosley Mini-33, small cannot be good, right? I was
to stick with Mosley until I called then and got 30-40 working days
So, which one of those two is better (or worse)?
TH-3JRS is obviously cheaper, $360 vs $500, but A3S seems to be more
broadband and will take more power, 2kW vs 600W.
