I am sure the major consideration in the development of this antenna system
was not the resulting gain, but the resulting consistancy on receive of
incoming signals as prop changed.....fading should be way way down.....there
is "always" an antenna at the right height!
I currently am working on a two yagi stack....while it will be nice to be
louder, mebbe....I want to be able to receive better over a larger/longer
time frame....i.e. with one height of antenna you have one peak window of
time - with two you have at least three if not four (upper/lower/In Phase
pair/Out of Phase pair)
As a notorious contester once said "Loud is Good".... and this has been
proven....what is even better is to be able to run them guys responding to
your loudness without needing a single repeat or fill!
