[TowerTalk] inverted L tower mounting

I want to upgrade antennas for 160m from my current inverted vee @ 115'. I'd 
like to put up an inverted L to get some vertical plus horizontal polarization 
for DX and domestic contesting. My situation is that the only two supports that 
I have are towers. Most everything that I've read says this doesn't work well, 
however I've seen some guys do it.

I'd be interested from hearing from anyone who has had good luck mounting a 
160m inverted L on standoffs from a grounded steel tower. The guys are broken 
up with insulators and I have 2 towers to choose from - 90' with 10/15m yagis 
and 130' with 20/40m yagis. The towers are 110' feet apart.

73 / Tnx,
