Ed, Aim the antenna as straight up in the air as you can, reflector resting on the ground, with the director up in the air. The entire antennas will be perpendicular to the ground. Sawhorses are no g

Is it by chance a CC, A50-5S? I used one before and the F/B, gain and side rejection weren't anything to write home about. 5 elements really needs close to a 24' boom to be as super antenna. (a la K6

Bud, Having never used a 2 element 40m array I can't speak on that *particular* antenna. However I've used hundreds of other types on all bands. 160m-70cm I have had a 80m 2el broadside/endfire array
