Yes, that is also my observation. No difference in signal
strength that would be worth to mention, but fading is smaller.
I have a pair of XA's at 18m and 31m heights at the tophill location.
David, be carefull when using two antennas at different towers
in the same or various directions. I modeled that for my
case and I now know how can I point the beams on one
tower and quad on sepparate tower that I get
advantage and not pattern disstortion or attenuation effect.
All that depends strongly on particular antenna setup.
