The angular spread of the Buffalo UHF stations is about 20 degrees. The HPBW of the DB8e varies from about 25 degrees at the low end of the UHF band to about 16 degrees at the high end of the (current) UHF band, assuming the panels are in parallel alignment. The numbers from the mathematical model would appear to accommodate this condition just fine and his reception results would appear to validate the models.

Note that WNYB is actual a VHF-5 station, so we're ain't going to see that one with a DB8e unless you were pretty close to the station's tower.
