(assuming you're not talking thunderstorm noise, which is randomly polarized) For close distances, small absolute changes lead to big dB changes.. If the source is 100 ft from one antenna and 200 from the other, that's a 6 dB change. And, close to the antenna(s), small changes in relative position might be many degrees in the pattern cut. _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ TowerTalk mailing list TowerTalk@contesting.com http://lists.contesting.com/mailman/listinfo/towertalk ```
