I would expect that if you have three 20M Yagis stacked for 20M that
they are spaced something like a wavelength apart and the difference is
in the angle that is covered by that high one which is probably up
something like 50m. EZNEC is not going to show you the angle at which
the signals are traveling between you and the West Coast of the US so
that might explain why when you throw in that high one you see that much
difference. You probably don't see a HUGE difference in those cases
between all three and just the high one alone like you see when you
compare the lower two to all three. In the case of comparing two
different stacks at the same heights, the results should be more like
what the software would predict.
