According to this:
The company which designed and built the dual trideco antenna system at
Cutler had to guarantee >50% radiation efficiency, and they achieved an
antenna radiation efficiency of 74.9% when using the 6 panel trideco.
When I read this, I was truly amazed.
Although, this site:
does say that with 2 MW input, the ERP is 1 MW, which would indicate at
least 50% radiation efficiency.
I am still amazed.

Very true indeed.
