Mail Server Issues

Over the past several days we have had a significant number of outbound emails rejected. The most common domains affected have been MSN, Live, Outlook, and Hotmail. We have also found a few additional domains hosted on these servers are also affected.

SteppIR Antenna’s CrankIR Goes Global! Update 11/20

QSL - Raivavae Front v1 QSL - Raivavae Back v4

Robert, N7QT and Grant, KZ1W take two CrankIR Antennas across the line into the South Pacific for a successful operation from Raivave Island, French Polynesia. Robert and Grant “Cranked It” as TX5D October 2-14 2013 racking up more than 18,000 QSOs and introducing the world to the CrankIR Antenna.

If you missed this opportunity to hear a CrankIR on the air you can hear Rob again from Saba as PJ6/N7QT November 8 – 16.

Mike (K7IR) & Adam (K7EDX) join the fun as FS/K7IR & FS/K7EDX for a bit of “Holiday-style” operations.


EHU Repair Options Update

In our efforts to maintain the highest reliability of our Element Housing Units we have come to the decision to discontinue our EHU Exchange Program. The primary purpose of the program had been to allow customers who had suffered a failed EHU an opportunity to upgrade to the latest model unit. This worked well for both SteppIR and, more importantly, our customers. As time passed the availability of suitable parts has diminished and the number of new parts used in producing a “refurbished” EHU has increased dramatically.

With the close of the exchange program we will offer our remaining refurbished units for sale, but there will not be a “Core Credit” available. These units will be sold on a first-come first-served basis and once the inventory is depleted we will stop taking orders for refurbished EHUs. New EHUs will continue to be readily available.

If you would like to have your existing EHU repaired our technicians are available to provide the best service available. Our shop rate is $75/hr, parts and shipping not included.

We thank you for your continued support of SteppIR Antenna Systems.
