Thanks Dave.

Please note that the PDF has been updated to indicate the computer modeling work you have cited.

Still, gain in excess of 16 dBi for any home built antenna is very remarkable.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
