 ```Is it possible you are looking at the elevation pattern at 45 degrees off of boresight? Say at 0 or 90 degrees azimuth? The models that come with EZNEC at oriented with line of the elements parallel to the X and Y axes, so the main lobe is at 45 degrees and the gain at 0 or 90 is down about 2.5 dB. 73, Terry N6RY On 2009-07-08 3:35 PM, Andy Ikin wrote: > Hello Folks, > > I am trying to make some meaningful RDF comparisons with Vertical arrays, > K9AY arrays and 4 sq.
