Hello to all,
I am wondering if a stack of three Log-Periodic Antennas is the way to go.
At best my single tower station will have three Tri-Banders on it. Possibly
a Force12 C3S around 90-60-30 feet.

I have been seeing allot of talk about the Stepper Antenna Systems.
>From what I am reading, the big advantage in this type of antenna seems to
be the antenna tuning to the frequency of use.

In the past I have heard negative comments that a Log-Periodic has allot of
aluminum not being used. These remarks may be true when compared to
Mono-Band antennas but is it true when compared to tri-banders.

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the performance of
Log-Periodic antennas as compared to a Tri-Banders. Is this the type of
antenna to use for contest operations.

Any comments on the performance and quality of these antennas.
I am considering models:
T6---12 foot boom---6 elements
T8---18 foot boom---8 elements

I understand both these models can be side mounded on my tower.

Thanks for your help.
