Any of you antenna gurus out there ever tried a simple dipole, with a 
director on each side of it?  In other words , string a dipole, then place a 
set of directors, parallel, and on both sides at once?  I havent been able to 
make head or tails of these antenna design software packages, guess I need to 
set in a class to actually see one work.  What I have is temporary loops 
installed for 17 and 12 meters, and have constructed "director" dipoles which 
I  have hung on verticle bamboo poles , just in front (facing East) of them.  
Appears to be working better than just the plain loop - for that direction of 
course.  But, am wondering if I can get bidirectional antennas out of them by 
hanging two such directors.  Dont want to go thru the "phase switch" method 
etc.  Just experiementing to see what I can use on field days, scout 
camporees etc.
