Well, it looks like I may finally have found someone to put up an antenna
for me, and have the budget, but...

Here's the story - I live in NYC, and the biggest problem is my lots is 42
ft wide - yep, just 42 ft

Now, I have an old TA33'tigarray' (a JR with the full power traps)  that I
can put up, and my present antennas are a DX-EE and a TV Evans 17/80 dipole

Now, I'm seriously considering a SteppIR, but with a turning radius of 19.7,
we're getting into the area of "it barely fits", plus it's large enough that
I'll probably hear complaints from ALL the neighbors in the area

So, that said - anyone have some ideas?  What would YOU put up on a small
urban lot?
