Good story, Bob.
What if we changed the question, and added a 43 foot alum antenna
like DX-Engineering and Force-12 sell? How would you predict it
would compare to the other two (i.e., SteppIR vert and Hustler 5BTV) ??
I figure it would be a beast to tune, maybe not radiate as efficiently as
a tuned trap (certainly not as well as the tuned SteppIR) - but would
give me 160 - 10 M coverage the others could not.
Dumb idea? Or better to get a different, shorter antenna for like 40-10M
and use something else for 80/160?
THANKS for the uptake. Sounds like the SteppIR vert might be worth

put the Steppir on the roof again where
