Although we all have a right to our opinions, for me I have found that the 
SteppIR beam (3 element in my 
case) has far outperformed my previous 2 beams.

I like the ability to of the beam to play well at the bottom of the cw portion 
of each band and also at the top 
of the phone bands.   All of my previous beams forced me to compromise at one 
end or the other.  The 
180 degree shift has been an absolute pleasure during a contest!

Mechanically (and electrically), my SteppIR has performed (so far....only been 
up about 9 months) well.  
There are an awful lot of satisfied customers all over the world.

Unfortunately, we often only hear from those that have problems and as a result 
think that there are 
pervasive problems.  Those that are happy, often are too busy using the beam to 
chime in with the good 

73 from a happy customer.
