 Antenna Gain on Trial
 Most people think it's a good thing to have and the more the better. However, this is not always true  and the amount of gain is often not what it appears to be. Assuming higher gain is what you need, how do you determine what will give the best performance?

 Antenna Gain to ERP
 A radio's transmitting power can be concentrated along the horizon by use of a GAIN antenna. Although you may still be transmitting with four watts of power, your effective radiated powerwill be greatly increased. This table shows the effects of antenna gain on a transmitter with 4 watts of transmit power.

 G/T Simulations  by VE7BQH
 Here you will find information on how antennas behave when stacked
G/T is an important figureofmerit for the antenna's overall receive performance, because it balances forward gain (G) against received thermal noise (T).
