Antennas are part of every radio amateur's life. Here are some of my notes on antennas.
- SteppIR Beam. The SteppIR antenna here has been a mainstay for ~14 years. It is a 3-element yagi-type antenna that is tunable between about 14 and 54 MHz. Mine runs at about 40 ft above ground level with a Yaesu G-1000DXA rotator. Frequency tracking is automated through a serial connection to the Flex 6500 transceiver.
- SteppIR Maintenance. Like any mechanism, the SteppIR needs occasional maintenance. Click here for information on a current set of problems at AA6E.
