Look, I like complexity. I use motorized switched matching networks
on my antennas so I don't have to use a regular tuner...
The issue that I would be considering with something like a SteppIR is
more that it is both complex and has quite specialized parts.
If my aluminum tribander has loose rivets the day before a contest I
can go to Home Depot and get rivets... or if not rivets, screws.
If my beryllium copper tape gets snarled, I have to wait for a replacement part.
