But each one has a great pattern and some directionality! From 10 feet, pointed one at my radio area (computers, radios, electronics) and there was S9 noise, pointed the moxon 180 degrees away and it dropped to S1, that pattern amazes me.

Tomorrow will be working on the phasing and matching lines, then will post pics. of the entire assembly.

Wish me luck!
Good Job,

Look forward to seeing the pics.
