Thanks Pete, that is what we figured and we will be putting the EF140
perpendicular to the SteppIR elements. In this configuration do you think 6
feet is the minimum?

I have an EF-240S that is 6 feet above a tribander, and interaction was
severe until I turned it perpendicular. That suggests to me that much less
than 6 feet would probably be asking for trouble on 15 meters.
