Chet - I did a quick look at the StepperIr and am afraid to put up anything
in the air here in South Louisiana. We are about 30 miles from the Gulf of
Mexico with prevailing winds from the Gulf. There is salt in the air. Not
much, but, over time it takes its toll
I understand that the little motors in the StepperIr are sealed, but I am at
a stage in life that this will, probably, be the last tower and beam I put
up and do not want problems.
I just fear putting up a bunch of little motor driven elements.
I will seek out that report. Thanks for that reference.
