Check the elevation pattern, it can tend to be rather high angle on 15
and ten meters with nothing much at the horizon. But it gets out anyway,
just not always as good for long DX as a shorter or trapped vertical
would be. But with sporadic E propagation on 15 and 10 meters, a high
angle of radiation can be a benefit.
