This is an excellent presentation and worth some study.  The examples
showing how signal coverage change as you move from low to high to stacked
Yagis is quite interesting. 

When comparing stacks to single antennas, you often see little or no
difference.  Yet over the course of a contest, they make a big difference in
the score.  Dean's presentation does a lot to explain/demonstrate why that
can be.

Thanks to Dean for his years of work on this topic and for his willingness
to share his presentation for those of us who couldn't make Visalia.

Randy, K5ZD
