How long does it take to retract the elements? Do they come all the way in,
or just down to the 6 meter element length?
The SteppIR "elements" are copper tape encapsulated by fiberglass tubing,
sorta acting as a radome. In the 3 and 4 el SteppIR yagis elements can be
fully retracted in less than 30 seconds.
