Gary Myers inquired about modeling high dipoles vs vertical antennas, noting
the dipole shows higher gain.

LB where are you?? My recollection is that horizontal polarity gets all the
benefits of ground reflection gain, 5db or so being typical of the 6db
theoretical maximum. Vertical polarization gets none of this benefit but I'll
be danged if I can explain why. Perhaps one of you scientists out there will
enlighten us on this subject!
