Tain't nearly as big as some, but it does have good performance 20-10.  
I'd still like to hear some comparisons between the TH11 and the 
Tennadyne T14.10-30HD (30 through 10 meters) with a 42 ' boom and the 
longest element being 53'.. I've had one suggestion to look into it and 
one that had problems with fit and strength. OTOH I even had a fit 
problem on the boom of a 7L C3i when they got in some out of spec 
tubing, but they made it right and did so promptly.

I need something good and rugged at it will end up at roughly the same 
height as the nearby trees. We get a lot of wind that is usually is very 
turbulent and contains lots of small branches.
