Here's a challenge to SteppIR wannabes:

Figure out how to make the elements of retractable
tubing, so when not in use, they collapse down to
3 feet (each side) or whatever.  This would reduce
the 2 element antenna to the size of a TV antenna when not in
use.  This might be a big advantage for restricted
QTH's.  The antenna could have an additional "5 meter"
band setting which would qualify it as a channel 2
TV antenna for legal purposes.

For ideas, study those retractable car radio antennas.
