It doesn’t look like a traditional beam, but it sure works DX like a SteppIR!
This antenna is excellent for use where a traditional beam may not be appropriate. It’s a high-performance 2 element beam 20m-6m, and a folded dipole on 30 and 40 meters. Yes, 40 and 30 meters coverage combined with a beam requiring only a 15.5 foot turning radius. Low-sunspot-cycle DX *is* possible with a simple rotator and mast.
