Topband: RDF in the real-world

I agree. There are times, especially in disturbed condx, when my BOG 
antennas are "head and shoulders" better than my other antennas. 

       I can't vouch for JC's numbers (his numbers may be QTH 
specific), but the
concept is believable since the theoretical assumption of isotropic noise
falls apart in the real-world. My BOG *at times* gives much more of an SNR
improvement than the SAL-20 (using measurements on a calibrated S-meter) in
spite of the small difference in RDF between the BOG and SAL-20.
