The past 24 hours pretty clearly show me that the 14avq on the top of the hill gets to Europe much better then the 1/4 Vertical with 8 radials! The 1/4 does better from 180 to 360 degrees and is heard way more often then the 14avq.
The next step will be to move the 1/4 gp to the top of the hill and do another test however its clear to me what the results would be. There is no way the 14 avq with some random radials can outperform the finely tuned 1/4 Vertical specific to the 20m Band.
Over the past hour the 1/4 Vert way outperforms the 14AVQ .... 180 to 360 deg
