        Just curious, how far apart do you have your two antennas?  I have a 3 
element and have considered (just thinking) stacking two.

  It seems strange that the harshest, possibly the only critics of the SteppIR 
  antennas, are those who have the least experience with the antenna. I have 
  not seen nor heard of a single complaint from an owner. Although I am sure 
  there is ONE out there. I have had 4 SteppIR antennas. I have assembled 6 
  SteppIRs and can do it in a couple of hours for a 4 el to an hour for a 3 
  el. I currently have two stacked 4 el SteppIRs and have not had a problem 
  that was not operator induced. When I did screw up FM guys were right there 
  to bail me out with parts and advice as needed. It  seems obtuse to equate  
  an individual's  mechanical inepptitude with designer error. Based on that 
  reasoning we would all still be walking from bush to bush for our 
  sustenance. So far as appliance ops, the SteppIR is the only antenna I know 
  of that allows me to run modelling programs in my shack and experiment with 
  various designs as often and as much as I feel the need. I make daily 
  adjustments to my antennas from the comfort of my shack. I doubt that I 
  would be doing much experimentation if I had to climb the tower during our 
  harsh northeastern winters (summers too for that matter).
