Depends on your point of view. I'm about 30' over the top of the hill
(1360'...pretty good for WPA) and it does kick B... in the opposite
direction, N. South towrds the Pole isnt as good, albeit, not terrible. The
lower antenna is at 40', the 402BA is at 50'. Cranked up another 20'  on the
EZ-Way makes very little, if any, difference. I'll take it!
