    Just my two cents worth. I don't own one and  haven't used one but my 
baseline is what contesters are using. They know what  works and doesn't work and 
typically are on the leading edge of performance. I  don't know of any 
serious contesters that are using Sommer antennas. 
    Also they have LOTS of parts, connections and  electrical joints - more 
parts than a KT34XA I think. Anyway, I think they're  way more complicated than 
    I'd suggest a triband SteppIR and CC 2L 40 for a  more effective set-up.
