Would you recognize going from 1 db below the noise level to 2 db
I suspect every long-time DXer has had an experience where he almost
but not quite made a QSO and sincerely believed just 1 db more would
have made the difference. I know I have.
Having said that however, I still don't worship gain figures, even if
they are accurate. I appreciate things which are reliable most of all.
I'll trade a db or maybe two of gain for an antenna that works when
you want it to, year after year, no muss, no fuss.
