If you use a base-loaded HF vertical antenna such as the Hy-Gain 18VS, you will have to change the taps on the loading coil to work other bands. That can be a hassle if you don't have antenna coil clips to select the proper turns on the coil.

Connecting the proper tap quickly will enable you to switch bands efficiently with out much effort.
