Interesting feedback.  I guess that calls for more
modeling to see what the other performance 
parameters are when optimized for F/B or SWR.

I do NOT mean to bash the SteppRR.  I think 
it is a NEAT idea and certainly offers reasonable
performance with minimal windload.

For the next step, I would propose a 24 ft boom with
individual REFLECTORS for each band, lined up in
descending frequency order from the DE with variable
DE and DIR.  I'd be glad to "Beta Test" this idea,
just in case someone from SteppRR is reading :-)

It will be interesting to see how the electrical connections
between element sections and other mechanical issues
hold up over time.
