For ATV I have used a Conifer BBQ grill type 2.4 GHz antenna with a Loop for 
1.2 GHz in front of the 2.4 GHz feed. The 1.2 side has plenty of return 
signal in the order of 18 dBi for ATV work. I haven't seen a loop yagi that 
will touch it in performance. I run full duplex with filters on both 
frequencies 1253.25 receive and 2441.5 transmit with 10 W. I am able to work 
the W6ATN repeater from 40 + miles.
