I use the Solarcon A-99 for weak signal digital on 10m,12m,15m, and 17m. I also have used a tuner at 20m with this antenna. I would not cut the antenna . I would use the tuning rings and leave the length intact. Simple hook up the swr meter and raise or lower the rings. It seems broad banded enough if you leave it intact. This way you have addition bands without destroying the antenna. I tuned mine to 12m and it work well.
