Yes.

I researched this. The beam patterns of the 8 bay bowtie designs and the 91xg were close, however the 91xg's pattern is a little more narrow. I knew I was going to get a lot of power off...

Which is why my signal varies 10 or so points on the meter during the day. The 1-edge conditions play with the signal's trajectory as you describe.

Since this has been an ongoing learning experience, I thought I'd share the latest with my setup.

Further update...

The daytime isn't kind to KLEW. Reception is rock solid stable in the evening hours, morning and mid-morning. Starting about 9:00am, pixellation begins to set in. Signal quality...

Update KLEW RF 22

Well, the 91XG is airborne. I need to fiddle with the aiming a bit more. KLEW on RF 22 has not locked. I do see flashing one bar regularly as well as the signal meter bounces between 0 and 27 (high...
