I replaced a TH7DXX with a 3 element SteppIR back in Dec 2001.
Not only am I completely satisfied with the performance of the SteppIR,
my neighbors like the SteppIR much better than the much larger TH7.
The SteppIR is a delight. It works better than the TH7 and it is
lighter, smaller and has less wind-loading.
AND, the SteppIR covers all of those freqs between the ham bands.
The SteppIR also covers 6 meters (with the extra element) although
without the 180 degree switch feature.
I would suggest you sell the TH-11 to someone who has not yet heard
about the SteppIR.

Subject: [Towertalk] TH-11 vs. Fluidmotion/SteppIR antenna
I am faced with a real dilemma here. I have a NIB TH-11 that I was
install in about a month. I got this antenna because it covers all of
bands and the performance is top notch for its size.
Now, along comes a company with an antenna that suits my needs even
The Fluidmotion antenna seems to do a lot of what the TH-11 does, with
windloading and a lower profile. Plus, I wouldn't have to upgrade my
nor would I max out my tower. My original plan was to put up a 3 EL
Loaded M2 40m yagi, a 6m yagi and the TH-11. I was planning the
an Orion rotor and chromally mast. If I go with the Fluidmotion, I
can still get by with my Tailtwister rotor and put the Orion money
Your thoughts?? This ought to stir the pot!!
