How true.  I put up a 2 element delta loop beaming east for the 10 meter 
contest.  I also put up a bi-square oreiented NW-SE for the JA's.  
Sometimes on the east coast stations, the delta loop was better, and 
sometimes the bi-square was better.  I could work stations on the loop 
for a while, and when things slowed down, switch to the other antenna and 
things would pick up again.  Strange!!!! 73 and Merry Christmas
