Why not just stack a Cushcraft D4 or similar 10-14-20-40M dipole above
or below the Steppir beam for band scanning?
That way there is no problem with listening as the Steppir remains on
freq, or listening as the Steppir retunes once you've decided to
transmit on a new freq or band?
Problem is that my SteppIR dipole is _already_ that antenna. ;^)
I don't understand. The SteppIR requires tuning, the D4 does not.
That makes the D4 (or something like it) the perfect adjunct to
Another option might be a vertical to listen around w/o disturbing
the SteppIR until you are certain you want to change.
