STEPPIR DB-42/80 HF antenna - Aug 22, 2021

This antenna is less than a year old. Selling because my mission has changed.

The SteppIR DB 42/80 has been removed from my tower and is in my hangar 15 miles west of Denton, Texas.

It shouldn't take the next owner but a couple of hours to re-assemble and mount to another tower.

No mechanical pieces or hardware were removed from the antenna, and it is broken down into about 14 sections approximately 12 ft long. All EHUs are still fully assembled as well as all brace structures. The tilt plate is still mounted to the antenna and goes with the sale.

I ordered a new Tilt Plate for my next antenna at a cost of $1700 dollars they were previously $750.

It will have a new SDA 2000 controller unit and approximately 150 ft of control cable already wired, and a pre-wired test box, all less than a year old.

This should be an easy move and install for someone with a small bumper pull 14-foot trailer. Ther are no loose parts or hardware to lose in the move.

I paid over $10,000 for everything included with this antenna plus 120 hours of initial assembly time. I'm asking $7500 or best offer.

If anyone in the Dallas- Fort Worth area purchases the antenna I will be willing to serve as an advisor, if needed, during the re-assembly process. It comes with assembly and operation manuals.

X7 Big Thunder Tribander Yagi antenna

The X7 Triband Yagi is geared to set new standards in both radiating performance and mechanical reliability. The product development team has employed the latest computer modeling technology to achieve a superior electrical design as well as elegant new mechanical hardware and assembly techniques. Each mechanical component was designed to 100+ MPH wind survival with a 1.25 safety factor. Traps were eliminated from the high current driven elements and reflectors using the new 4L Log Cell design, which yields virtual monoband performance and maximum power handling capability. Traps are employed only in the lower current directors for increased gain and sharper pattern. The result is a truly high performance antenna which will easily handle the legal limit.

  • New High Efficiency Computer Optimized Design for Maximum Gain and Ultra Clean Radiating Pattern
  • 100+ MPH Construction for Best Reliability and Long Life
  • NEW 4L Log Cell Driven Elements for better VSWR Bandwidth
  • Trapless Driven Elements and Reflectors for Reliable Power Handling

40 meter add on kit X-740 available.
For Sale- Just removed from my tower.
This antenna has the 40 meter X-740 ad-on element, $400 additional as I remember.
I believe I paid around $1400 asking $700. Was partially dis-assembled for ease of transporting but will be a quick re-assembly. I live 15 miles west of Denton one mile north of highway 380.
This was a great antenna, however I'm replacing it with a Stepir DB42 for better utilization of the MARS/CAP frequencies.
