Re: These Ducks Quack !!! Pat;
Nice work. Yes the dipole reflector is the best one for your setup. Reading your graph, it looks like the extra care with the first antenna netted you about 2 dB of gain.
That's nearly twice as good. 8 dB of gain is half as much gain as 11 dB of gain. I say the little antenna is a dipole most surely.
Take that same reflector and put it on a WET-11 and it will perform badly, take that WET-11 template you build and it will perform about as good as the other does with a dipole, you are getting about 10 or 12 dB of gain with the first antenna. Nothing to sneeze at and the workmanship is good.
