I2VRN is S7/8 on the Inverted Vee and S9 on the UrbanBeam, but . . .
I have noticed right at the EU sunrise an the West Coast sunset – at this time of the year, EU stations are more intelligible on the Inverted Vee than the UrbanBeam. The reason? S/N ratio, and I suppose it has to with takeoff angle and the fact that higher angles are supported at this time of the morning / evening.
I’ve noticed that same thing with Tom, DF2BO, so its not just a fluke. Interesting – I did not expect the Inverted Vee to work this well.
