Hi Duncan,
  I have built a few Vee Beams, and rhombics, and helped/advised building a 
couple for fixed/point to point use for specific traffic nets. They are 
rather fun to use, and interesting to compare to other antennas. They all 
have a specific angle to work best, and that needs to be looked at closely 
to enable it to be compared accurately, to another antenna. They all have 
better results being higher, however, even in a lower configuration of less 
than 10 meters, they are usable. Just take into account the lower elements 
and make adjustments to the design.
But enough specualtion, if I can help, answer specifics, I'd be happy to. No 
problem. Like what freq are you looking for, and one last thing.... they are 
really tuff to rotate. (unless you have more than one) *chuckle*
