Thanks Tom. I like to have my data as close as possible to the real world.
It also helps with figuring out self interference mitigation and heat maps.
I have just used the Yagi pattern file for now. Looking forward to the file
and good luck with your move! I did that several times, 7 times under a 6
year period.
