I have had about the same experience in the past with a full wave delta loop
on 80 meters. The loop was sloped at 45 degrees and fed at the bottom
corner. Worked great for me.
Did a lot of A/B comparisons with the delta loop and a half wave inverted
vee. Got different results between early evening and early morning showing
the loop was definitely a low angle antenna.
Ah yes, those were the days...
