Improved in what way? Did a quick check in NEC.
When going to about 1.5 wl spaceing, that will
give about 2 wl on the diagonal, two strong
aditional back loobes comes up in low elevation.
Hardly does anything to the strong high angle
rear loob which is very narrow and generaly isn´t
a big problem. Gain comes up with about .5 dB.
Do I miss something? I can´t see the improvement.

For those using Comtek and other boxes that restrict one to 90 and 180 degree phasing, you can get an improved pattern by increasing the spacing between elements. A half wave across the diagonal seems to work well.
