For the record - I had a controller fail - Mike, K7IR, at SteppIR sent a 
replacement, no questions asked.  I also had an EHU fail - again, Mike 
sent a replacement gratis.  I've had nothing but exceptional service.  
Mike also has called me directly to inquire about my satisfaction with 
the products.  Anyone else have the president of a company call them to 
inquire about their satisfaction?  I'll never switch to any other 
antenna system. 

If there is an issue with "nonexistent customer service", I submit that 
someone with the problem must be doing it wrong. 

I really like my old SteppIR 4L with the 40/30 meter add on, for the record.
