I have a SteppIR MonstIR which is a Monobander from 40M to 6M...3 El on
40/30,  4 El on 20/17/15/12/10,  6 El on 6...

I would love to run it head to head against any other beam with the same
boom length.

I would be surprised if it did not outperform every other beam on the market
with the same boom length...

Or it sure seems that way in every contest and every DX pileup... It is
invariably the first call they respond too... in fact, it seems to so
dominate that when on the rare occasions it is not responded to first, I am
invariably quite surprised....

I missed the start of this thread but I have the instructions for the 3 el
TET 40 meter beam on a 36 foot boom.  The TET beams just add a tri-bander to
the 40 meter boom.

KB4J had excellent results with the 5 el tri-bander on a 24 foot boom but
don't know what model this was.  Tet are still sold by Emtron from

I still have the boom and most of the aluminum but beware...the coils were
wound with aluminum wire.
The 3 el TET worked slightly better than the Mosley S-402 I had for several
years but its still light years behind the 2 el Cushcraft.
