Be careful with concluding much from the data requested.  A "tribander"
means what exactly?  100 ft tower or 30 ft tower - in a valley or with a
commanding view of the favored direction from hillside/hilltop, near
saltwater or surrounded by 100s or 1000s of miles of ground before a
saltwater bounce to the favored directions.  A 10 ft boom mini tribander or
a 40 ft boom monster.


All of the above are "just using a tribander".


Counter that with fixed wire beams to EU from favorable spots like I had in
2002 - 2004 or like N1PGA and WA1Z have currently and the "guy with wires"
will blow away the 30 ft tribander on flat terrain not near the sea.


What is it you are really trying to present?  Just a question to think
