I've noticed a relationship between bandwidth and antenna gain. My observations are based on antenna descriptions by the mfg/seller of the antennas.
Example, an antenna described as a vhf 5/8 wave antenna will claim a 3 dbd gain. With a 6 MHz bandwidth. A 1/4 wave antenna unity gain ( same mfg) will be described as not needing a tune over 30+ MHz.

My question is: Does this relationship actually exist?
Be vewy vewy quiet.
