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.
