Not in this case. Look what happened 2500 feet out. I was still getting multipathed hard. In fact, the closer I got, the worse the interference. Admittedly the stock antenna did much better than I expected. I was never able to get it out that far before.

The results with the linear antennas is not repeatable. I could fly back to back flights in the same direction and get different results each time. However the results with CP are consistent.
