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 
cover WARC. 
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.
