Perhaps signals travel better over salt water? My single 4 element beams in
Aruba seems to work much better than my 6 / 6 stacks in Illinois.

Very interesting...In fact, the directivity is less with the salt water...
The difference in foward gain is about 0.5 dB, but the difference in loss is
0.9 dB, so the "extra" 0.4dB must be going into making the main lobe
All in all, though, such a small difference that you'd never see it in real
