Have 3 element Steppir, it will work well for you.  Mine has survived 3
years of high winds and Micro Bursts, which is more than can be said of my
rotators and Masts:-)

My 4L SteppIR is at treetop level - on a 55 foot tower.  I've worked 307 
entities in about 4 years - SWR is flat across the bands, including 40, 
and 30M is about 1.5 or so to 1.  A SteppIR will work wonders, and the 
tower height should of little impact.

Good luck!
