I'm certainly not an antenna expert, but why does this PR talk about "percent efficiency" when the industry norm is to compare antennas with dB gain compared to a reference antenna? Is this some "executive summary" dumbing-down or a classic case of "the emperor has no clothes"? I'm suspicious ...

I have to admit I am no antenna expert. They did provide other figures of merit. Perhaps I failed to capture the most significant ones. I would love to hear what anyone thinks after reading through their spec sheets online as inducated above.
