You know ... I get confused with this obsession with absolute precision
in pointing antennas with a 10-50 degree wide (-3dB) main lobe. What am I
missing, other than the fun of calculating, calibrating, recalculating,
recalibrating ... and so on?
I kinda figure that you're going to rock the beam back and forth to get
the best signal from "the new one", no matter what the direction.
Why not compute the great circle path to WWV from your location, aim your
antenna in the general direction, rock the beam back and forth for
maximum signal, and calibrate to that?
We digging in the pepper again?
