I used a Tennadyne T6 for several years with excellent
results. No traps -- and little to go wrong with the
antenna. Very nice antenna. But then I switched to a 3
element SteppIR and find it produces superior results.
Of course, it has moving parts up in the air. That's
never bothered me.
The SteppIR has the same frequency agility as a LPDA
since it tunes continuously from 13.6 to 60 MHz but
with more gain and much better f/b.
