Yes a loop of metal
Pictured is a pair the C4MVJs they are bidirectional. Pulling signal from the front and the back. A reflector can be added to increase the forward gain but you will lose your bidirectionality.How does this compare to the classic double-V bowtie? Any upsides/downsides?
Mostly just curious why they would use that design, if it's just to look cool.Are you looking to purchase one or just a conversation starter?
So are the aluminum bits complete circles, or only part of the way around?It looks like a flat piece of aluminum in the Crescent shape
