I agree with W3JK about the SteppIR.  Yes, it has great reviews about  the 
way it functions, the ability to instantly go 180 degrees, the ability to do  
WARC bands and to optimize for all parts of the band.  But, it is not a  "magic 
antenna".  Given a 4 element Yagi on a 32 foot boom, it will do  about the 
same in gain as another well designed antenna...even some old homebrew  job.  
is easy to get caught up in the hype.  Remember the hype over  quads in the 
60s and 70s, the "wonder antenna" KT34XA of the 80s and the Force  12 of the 
90s?...all good antennas. but they don't work magic.
