In the spring of 2007 I decided to buy a 4 element SteppIR antenna.
This gives me the possibility with the use of my C31xr from Force 12 in the second hf tower, to operate so2r during contests. The steppir is an antenna witch is adjustable from 14 to 50mhz with elements that glides trough glass fiber poles. With a kit you can attend a dipole for 30 and 40 meters to the antenna.
