I figured it's some function of wavelength. Right mow I'm extremely antenna
limited, but can park oh, 10-15 ft from a salt water bay, with the water about
5 ft down on a seawall - setting up a nice "lunchtime vda" would be possible,
and depending on where I park, I can probably cover about 170- 180 total degs
