Thank goodness!  That reduces the back log for 
other potential SteppIR owners.  The features of 
a SteppIR aren't found in any other 
yagi.  Complex?  Yup.  But they sure work.  I've 
managed to snag 301 countries in just over 3 
years with the SteppIR.  No, I'm not rich, don't 
have a crane, but I did put up a fold over/crank 
up tower to make it easier to work on the 
antennas.  And I've had to do that with my 
Hygain/Moseley/Cushcfrat antennas in the past.  I'll take the SteppIR.
