My experience has been the same as Gene, AD3F. My initial exposure to the spiderweb antenna, however, wasn't until the 1960s - 200 years after Gene's. ;-) I currently have an inverted vee spiderweb antenna for 80/40/30 and it works great. It's attached at the 55 foot level of my tower.
I spaced the elements apart using a soda straw with a piece of string through it - tie the string to each element to space them apart about every 8 feet or so, and you're set to go. As Gene suggests, you can also space the elements apart horizontally, should it be more convenient.
Give it a try and let us know how it works!
