I have said for a long time than when I see a 4 El steppir at W3LPL, that I
will get one for here. I don't think LPL has a C31 either.
I think my FL station was a world class station (K4XS). I had lots of
monobander stacks from 40 through 10, but I found room to stick up various
tribanders, from the so-so Cushcraft A-3, to the KT34X at different heights.
KT43XS at 65 feet was especially useful and was fully rotatable
Wish I could do the same thing here in HI, but land is expensive and there
are some liberal restrictions against towers. The setup for one tower needed
to meet several needs:
Ability to stack to hit various angles
Ability to cover contest all bands WELL (40 through 10) and the ability to
Cut down rain static, since it rain s a lot in Hawaii.
I looked at the various antennas and made my choice with the above
considerations as well as price and recommendations of users. For me, like
everyone, no antenna was perfect.....but the SteppIR seemed the way to go.
that I was sold 100% on the SteppIR concept, it just seemed to fit MY needs
It's like buying a car...same thing. What one fits YOU best. Toyota for
me, and maybe a Chevy for you. SteppIR for me, and maybe M2 for you.
