Nope. Sorry. You are wrong. The engineers here state that that type of  
performance from an Arrow Antenna is impossible. You are deluded.

Other engineers here state that you would really be pleased with the  
performance of the Arrow if it were polarized differently. Anywhere  
from 3-to-20dB increase in signal strength. So your "1 degree  
elevation" passes you are successfully working are nothin' ...
