New L-Band Patch Antenna

The new L-Band antenna now being offered here says the high frequency has been extended from 1625 MHz to 1660 MHz from the older version. I would use the antenna for Inmarsat reception but it would be nice to also be able to use it for L-band weather balloon reception at 1676-1682 MHz. Do you think it would suffer any significant loss of sensitivity at the 20 MHz higher frequency above the 1660 MHz spec? Would the drop-off in sensitivity be that steep? Thanks for any help here.
