i don't subscribe to the (a 5/8 is a 5/8) idea, thats not what our none scientific tests and everyday use at multiple locations show,
the gainmaster on a 14ft pole eats the imax on the same pole to some stations in the area,
similar differences are seen comparing say imax to i-10k,
some folk report their gainmaster beats their full size 5/8, some even say it equals the vector and others see the vector ahead,
for me the gm is almost as good as the i-10k but behind the vector hybrid,
the vector current maxima has a 6ft or so height advantage over any of the 5/8waves and that for sure goes some way towards its advantage.
i don't believe for a minute that the differences experienced are purely down to the antennas, the pole/feedline and surroundings are in the equation.
tom bearden taught me that quantum entanglement allows thought to travell faster than the speed of light, this explains why at first you can think somebody is smart but if you wait a while you will see they are not very bright at all.
