As I stated here before, you should take a serious look at Fluidmotion's =
continuously adjustable SteppIR three element monobander, 20M to 6M =
inclusive. I have one and it is an antenna worth noting, awesome. Check =
it out,  I was going to buy the Force 12's, =
XR-5, but when I investigated the SteppIR, it was no contest and now =
looking back and comparing results with my friends, I am not sorry. I =
have tomorrows antenna, today. =20

  I have watched the SWR meter whilke transmitting on my C-3s in very =

  The performance of the C-3 is so far above any other small tribander =
  the question isn't really worth considering, IMO.
