It's time to try new antenna on S band here is some results

BBQ grill with standard linear feed dipole Very strong and deep fades but signal peak at S9 plus 40 not very usable due to the fades
Single patch element a lot less fades but signal reach s9=5 at max
WI-FI double 20 yagi elements  the best up till now few fade but signal peak at s9 plus 50 at max i believe if i was able to rotate the 
antenna the fades will be eliminated.

It is a WI-FI beam "odd shape"  the driven element is in a plastic enclosure and the 2 row of 20 elements begin in a 45 degree shape up the 
6th diven element and the two row became parallel at the 7th element until the end of the beam.
