I found the exact same thing last night. I got best results with that angle at exactly 90 degrees. Admittedly, the best VSWR I can get appears to be 1.2. But I'm happy with that. I can't sweep the whole frequency except in steps and then I'd have to graph it manually.

Let me know how much the styrofoam shifts the frequency. I have been considering a few different protection methods. Does anyone know of a cheap plastic ball that could be sliced in half to cover the 4-1/4" radius of the 1.3GHz antenna?
