Did you test both?

Next ones will have a small coax (1/2 wave length)
Or humidity will even change it. I bet a short run of coaxial cable will lower SWR due to the antenna being farther away from the test device. I make my 5.8 GHz antennas with about 1 wavelength or so coaxial and the antenna is formed into it. I also make it so the feed acts as a balun
