I have 24 elements UHF linear yagi and after the switch i got a lot of small fades with a huge one. When i realign correctly the antenna 
all those small fades disappear and i got only one small one per pass. I agree it's not the best way to test it but my main concern was my 
correct alignment to the north and i can confirm it was effective as i am able now to hear many satellites from 1 degrees up to half a 
degree at LOS.
