Re: These Ducks Quack !!!
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.
