Wide feed gap vs narrow feed gap?
Various DYI's on this forum use 2", 3", 4" feed gaps. The centipede used a 1" feed gap.and the multi-lobed Stealth Hawk uses a 2" feed gap.and the forward gained GH uses a 3" feed gap.
If wider feed gaps give a bit better gain,.. does that mean there is a narrower beam-width therefore producing better forward gain? If so, then a narrow feed gap would be best for someone who wants a wider beam-width.
