Just having a brainwave here after reading your e-mail.
What would happen if you expanded the OWA concept.
Instead of two closely spaced elements, perhaps three (3)? That would be a
total of six elements.
Needs to be modeled, but my thought is to expand the bandwidth by exploiting
another closely spaced element and then to also shorten that boom to 100ft.
I agree with getting out of the relay game. Life is easy when points of
failure are minimized!!
