Testing was mostly inconclusive with 45 degrees on the right giving better
signal strength than straight ahead, and straight ahead giving results
within a +/-10dB range (i.e. useless); only conclusion was that you don't
want to be at 60 degrees from the axis of the antenna because signal level
dropped to zero (aka below noise level, I guess).

But that might just have been interferences from the grill. ;D

Not that I remember. We surely had a lot of fun building the collectors.
We talked a lot too (now, that's a surprise). I committed to buy a
compass. Err.. what else?


PS: Now that I think of it, the 60-degree thing might be a good news for
the 6-yogis, 360 degrees model of mega-repeater.
