No they do not defy physical laws. But you know what a 2 or 3 ele
beam is a very good antenna.
In fact a half wave dipole is a really good antenna.
If you don't think so - then put one up sometime at
a height near to that of your tribander/yagi etc. and do
some A/B tests. Half wave dipoles work quite well.
