    I do have plans to work DX in the future. I need to get an HF rig installed in the Dormobile.

    If so, and you plan to work primarily fron the western states, you might want to reconsider that callsign and get back to a "7". It'll make busting pile-ups a lot easier when they take stations by the numbers. At least this way you'll have an even chance with other stations in your area. Obviously when you're working paths over the poles it wouldn't matter much....But, working east/west would create a challenge.
    1x2's are great....if you can get what you want in your own zone. If your not a brass pounder (cw), and you're not concerned with callsign weight (morse code weight), you'd be better off with a 1x3 in your own zone.
    Again, if you're not concerned with DX chasing it really doesn't matter.

    I have moved around so much in my life that I am not too concerned about the zone - I could very well be back in Massachusetts some time soon. I am not really heavy into DX chasing anyway, I just like the occasional contact to Argentina or Japan, especially if I am transmitting from some back country place where I don't even have cell phone service.
