It's been doing the rounds for years in one form or another. I remember trying one from a 70's or 80's ARRL H&K book. a 45 degree PVC pipe bend of suitable diameter, 3 or 4 inches. Suitably fixed to the top of the radio, blu-tak or whatever. Paint to match. Very useful to focus the sound.

I'm sure a suitably embellished matching "K-pipe", available soon no doubt, will be even better ;-)

That idea was highlighted again in May 2016 QST Hints & Kinks, pg 63.
