LPL impression is confirmed by also my own, although I'm convinced that 10m
benefits of very low angles much more than any other HF band.
At IR4T we have infact a 10m yagi 7WL over a nearly perfectly flat ground,
extending for miles, and there isn't such a benefit with a lower antenna
when we tried that.
On the contrary, the 20m antenna, *only* 3.5 WL over ground, seems not to be
so much performant at such height for some paths.
