>Ten Tec Orion, Alpha 87A and the 4 element SteppIR

Nice station!

Your SteppIR must have the complicated matching network to work for all
bands since element positioning is a compromise with the design.  This
network is lossy.

By contrast, a Force 12 multi-monoband has no such compromise and no
associated loss.

Give me the Force 12 antenna for simplicity, strength and light weight.

BTW, my station:
Icom 775DSP, Alpha 87A, Force 12 C-4XL (soon to be a stack of C-4XL, C3,
C-4XL, C3 on 150 foot tower).
