Matt, as you are the one who brought up third party stories about 
SteppIR antennas, I would suggest that the one who "start(ed) shooting 
flames all over the place" came from you and your unnamed source.  
Relaying third hand "problems" reduces it to hearsay. 

I suggest the ham in question should pick up the phone and call 
SteppIR.  That should make his day.  I"m sure he will receive the 
assistance he needs.  Anyone who invests in such an antenna should be 
motivated to the point of checking for their phone number, which is in 
their assembly/owners manuals as well as at the SteppIR website.

Taking action rather than bemoaning one's fate normally works so much
