Well, IMHO, I think the Cushcraft A4 would be a good choice of
antenna. I have been using CC antennas for 30 plus years and have yet
to have had a problem with one. My only failure was when my tower
came down in a micro-burst. For some reason, meeting an oak tree on
the way down destroyed the following CC antennas: X7, 5 el 6m and 19
el 2m. Darn <grin>
Regarding the SteppIR, I do agree that its a good choice and worth
seriously considering for what you are proposing.
