>>Is 2 dB more gain worth $800 ???
> ...depends on where you are on the db/$ curve! If you have already made
sure you have the full legal limit output power for your country, and you have
the best receiver you can afford, then you have already worked your way up
the curve, and 400$ per db is a bargain!
> Where else in your station can you get 2db? [Especially on Tx AND Rx]?
You bet. In the 80's, a well-known ham in Texas that owned a pretty nice
multi-tower station said that 1 dB at his station cost about $1500.
As far as the 3 or 4L SteppIR, even Mike, K7IR, (Mr. SteppIR) said he
didn't know why people bought the 4L when the 3L was almost as good (and for
less money). You'll either be really satisfied with the 3L or you'll always
wish you had bought the 4L. Methinks it's more psychological than real
