4 ele STEPPIR versus 7 ele LFA ??

Found 50MHz closed in the morning. I have the relative heavy 9m long 7ele LFA back at 22 M ag
Now I can make a direct compare

On LX0SIX  50.02165 :
The Steppir 4ele  included the extra 6meter director
At about 16Mm a.g. and 60m coax cable
And the 7 ele 9m boom at 22m ag 30m H2000

Yes  there is a clear audio difference in favour for the 7ele
But I would expect S units difference?
1 S-unit  only I think
Or the STEPPIR is super or this LFA  is doing not much
It is time to make a small good designed 6m/4m Una ..
And forget about this dragon...
This pictures made Saturday when I first could see the results of last night.

The  white line 160m inv-L  is kept free from the boom by the spreader wires   this way I can rotate the 6M yagi without detuning / sparks

The JIDX  some JA's with good signals I guess only the big guns this time. Few weeks ago one could work JA in FM 10W..

PABEKER-CW  33 QSO  toen maar aan de koffie en gestopt  er kwam niemand meer retour  op 80/40
