Hi David, I can't believe you overlooked the Hexbeam. In this forum, on this page you could find this following thread: http://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php/topic,87291.0.html
At this moment I'm absolutely positive that the Hexbeam is the best small antenna for you money. Don't take it from me, just look at the reviews on this website of hexbeam manufacturers such as K4KIO, MW0JZE, SP7IDX and others.
5 or sometimes even 6 bands in one antenna. Small, lightweight, strong and durable. You don't need a big heavy tower and dito rotor.
Oh, and its cheaper then the two antenna's you mentioned. What more could you want!
Hope this helps
