Having suffered from this malady for many years, I simple came to the
conclusion that no matter how big your beam is, you can never have a beam
too big.  I believe this view is held by many, including the ARRL, who
publish a Handbook every year with many articles devoted to encouraging you
to employ an ever-bigger beam.  These article are replete with pictures, of
course, leading to an even more widespread condition:  beam envy.
