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.
