>Ten Tec Orion, Alpha 87A and the 4 element SteppIR
Your SteppIR must have the complicated matching network to work for all

network is lossy.
By contrast, a Force 12 multi-monoband has no such compromise and no
Give me the Force 12 antenna for simplicity, strength and light weight.
BTW, my station:

C-4XL, C3 on 150 foot tower).
