Morel... we all know SWR is not the whole story. I will let others debate with you about the
SteppIR's F/Band F/B ratios and gain figures in comparison with other antennas, as I am not all that
well qualified to discuss such matters.|
As concerns reliability and life expectancy of components, Fluidmotion has test-cycled the SteppIR mechanisms literally millions of times without failure. If you will search the archives of more than 4000 postings over the past 2-1/2 years of the SteppIR YahooGroup http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SteppIR/
you will find that over 600 users have described perhaps a dozen or two instances of problems, most of which were eventually attributed to causes other than the SteppIR antenna itself. And solutions to the few "actual" problems were quickly found and just as quickly resolved by Fluidmotion's amazingly responsive customer service. I know of no other manufacturer of antennas anywhere in the world that has the record of customer satisfaction and responsiveness to custmer needs that the folks at Fluidmotion have earned. If there has been one downside, it's that there have been so many orders that it takes a while to get one of these magnificent antennas. But, as always, anything worth having is worth waiting for!!
So, Morel, I will challenge you... you have my opinion, and I can point to the huge worldwide response to the SteppIR and the nearly universal satisfaction of SteppIR users worldwide as my evidence. Perhaps you can name me another "antenna design development since the invention of the yagi" that shows more promise for great all-around performance than the SteppIR concept? I don't think so....
