Put up the 3 element Steppir you will never regret it .Mine has been up for 5 
1/2 years. I needed  to replace a chip in my steppir control a couple of years 
ago  . I called Steppir and had the chip in 3 days They Have been very helpful 
when ever I called them  I think rumors with no callsign or anything to back 
them  are unacceptable . IE some local ham

An anecdote on the SteppIR since it came up a few times- a local ham had 
half an element simply fall off of his, pulling the metal strip out and 
leaving him with a 2 1/2 element beam and an un-retractable metal strip 
flapping in the wind.

When he inquired as to the possibility of getting replacement parts to 
fix it he was pretty much ignored.  It's getting to be something of a 
running joke around here how he's not able to get customer service at 
all for this.

Failures can be forgiven but the inability to fix one due to nonexistent 
customer service and hard to find parts rules that one out for this ham.

I really like my old A3S for the record.
