    I sail offshore from Florida to South Carolina near 80W at times, if
    you're following along on your chart. Nothing compares with AMPS at
    sea, especially with the 3W bagphone running off the house battery
    monsters into a 12 dB gain beam antenna hauled up the 56' mainmast
    pointed "towards shore" as best I can. Just like your experience at
    altitude there, I'm simply amazed at the range and clarity of 20W ERP
    at 50' across open water. The only time it drops out and is unusable
    is when the waves get over 20' high causing the antenna to point into
    the sea too often...(c;

    Of course, this is a convenience to crew, not a lifesaving comm
    system, which we also carry. Families sure like to hear from us and
    how we're doing at regular intervals.

    One of the cellular antenna web sites states that an onmi-directional
    antenna often outperforms a yagi. I was suprised to read that--especially an
    the ad for yagi's!

    That would be news to the communications industry, too...(c;

    There's a simple explanation...
    You can't point the Omni in the wrong direction:)
