Does adding more director elements(same length), and keeping the same spacing between the elements, make more Db gain? What type of Formula do you use to calculate, the length/number of elements to see a benefit?

I spent the day trying different things, and found using 75 Ohm Video Coax dropped the SWR's from 2.4+ (RG-58) to 1.2 !! Runs good SWR's thru the whole Band. I might just be done testing things, this is all I need for my uses. THANKS JOHN, for another GREAT Antenna!

I can't give a full report...yet, But this antenna is turning into "FRANKNTENNA". I've made some mods (I will tell more when finished), But I'm still liking this as a portable trip/field antenna. I can hit Repeaters 37 Miles away (MFJ-1918ex 10' stand, Cheap RG58 coax, and a 4 Watt Baofeng UV5-R). Not bad for a start....more to come

Read the Antennas' section of this Forum...I describe how they all go together.
