The 5 el 20 KLM monobander should be way stronger
than the TH7 if it works right. We had both of
those beams for years, and there was never a
comparison here. Check your feedline, balun,
element length and spacing, connections for the
phasing straps etc. 

The 5el 20 KLM is a very strong antenna in terms
of gain; it suffers only in durability. I don't
believe the 402 is causing the problem 16' away;
perhaps the proximity to the TH7 or the AB105 guy
wires could affect it in some directions.
