Our club is planning to have an NVIS antenna for 80m
and 40 meters during Field Day.  However:

The World Radio Books publisher's "Near Vertical Incidence 
Skywave Communication" book purchased from ARRL 
contains two articles (by the same author) showing an
NVIS wire reflector added to the driven NVIS wire element.

Because the ground itself is a reflector, and because
EZNEC confirms that adding the reflector is superfluos,
we do not think a reflector will help.
