With a 2 element beam, you have the option of the parasitic element being 
either a director or a reflector.  Is there a reason why all commercial 2 
element beams use a reflector?  I seem to recall from the ARRL antenna book 
that you can get slightly more gain out of using a director instead, and it 
seems that the director would be cheapter to produce than the reflector since 
it uses less materials.
