I would suggest that you look very carefully at a 3 element
SteppIR yagi. I've had one for about 18 months. Spent one winter
in Vermont with it, and was exceptionally happy.
If you're a button pusher, you'll love it...there are either
more buttons to push, or fewer...if you get the radio interface
option, the antenna will track your transceiver.
>From my perspective, compare the Skyhawk, C31XR and SteppIR...
and I believe a 3 el steppIR will equal the others on 10, 15 and
20, plus give you good 17 and 12 performance. And ONLY the steppIR
will let you flip direction 180 degrees in 2 or 3 seconds, or go
It's hard to beat something that requires absolutely
no tuning when you put it up, because it's all remotely
controlled. I assembled mine, and installed it on my tower in
an elapsed two hours.
But I'm biased. You should trust your own intuition after reading
I am considering buying one of the following antennas: Skyhawk; Force 12
C31xr; Hy Gain TH11Dx; Mosley Super 33: or Sommer xp 807. Can any of you
who have these antennas give me any input.
I am what most Ham call a button pusher Ham.
So, I value your comments.
