Tennadyne T-12, probably.

The 4L SteppIR is a better (gain) antenna but I've already heard of five motor failures and I suspect I'll be hearing of more over time.  T-12 has no moving parts, no traps, no coils, nothing to fail unless elements break and I've never seen that happen.

The F-12 model 5BA is a very good beam, I don't know if the "new" F-12 still makes it.

If you could put up only ONE antenna to cover 20 to 10 Mtrs (including
WARC), what would you select ?
The antenna will go on top of an LM-470.
Thanks for any suggestions.
