I wonder if someone has real experience with these antennas.

I have a KT34XA up at the moment which performs pretty good.

I'd like to have the WARC bands aswell, the options are add a A3WS with abt
12ft spacing to the KT34XA
or look for a 20 to 10m antenna.

I'm currently looking at the Force12 5BA , the other competitors have been
scratched (Mosley,Hyfain,Cushcraft) for different 

I've been modeling antennas much alike the Force 12 and the gain seems to
be corresponding to the claims.
But i like to have some extra opinion about the comparison between the
above antennas.

All info would be welcome..

Space is no problem on my tower, it easily handles a couple of square
