Ditto. The problem is, unless if you spend several hours reading up on any given antenna before buying, one gets caught by snake oil. I've been bit by it too, on the G5RV. [Then again, I've made wonderful contacts on 17m on mine!] Old ad copy never dies. Too bad an antenna company, wanting to make a respectable name for itself, couldn't just start advertising their build of it as 80/40/20 instead of 80-10. They'd probably not be able to sell it, even though it'd be just as good as anyone else's.
