I don't understand. The SteppIR requires tuning, the D4 does not.

That makes the D4 (or something like it) the perfect adjunct to
the SteppIR.

Another option might be a vertical to listen around w/o disturbing
the SteppIR until you are certain you want to change.

What I meant is that my SteppIR is mounted above my beam.

Listening really isn't an issue - it's being able to do something when
I hear something after a band change.  The only other antenna I have
is an HF2 & that at least gives me another antenna for 15.

The SteppIR dipole mounted perpendicular to a tribander makes a
great second antenna for contests & is a great solution for the WARC
bands.  Only problem I have is that my beam at present is only a 10m
Moxon rectangle...
