In the early going, this antenna is the BOMB!!! After the transition I was having issues in receiving RF13 CFTO. On good days I was measuring 22dB if lucky, but signal would fluctuate too frequently to make this station watchable. I was using a version of the Scatter Forager in order to try and get it. So I knew I was right on the cusp, so I decided to give this antenna a try.
After building it an testing in the early going, I've been getting a very reliable an constant 24-25dB...rock solid.
Thanks for this antenna...at this point I may build a second one of these to replace my channel-cut yagi that I'm using to try and get RF9.
The only negative thing I found out, was that the Scatter Forager was inadvertently used to pick up RF11 in the opposite direction of RF13. Now with this antenna, RF11 is blocked somewhat. I'm still getting it, but it cuts out at times.
Other than that minor issue, I'm so happy with this antenna. Great job.
