Hi. You can turn any vertical dipole into a yagi if you put a reflector near
it. One of the easier ones (I think) is the half-square beam (HSQ) which I have
described at www.isy.liu.se/~mj/HAM/ANT It is quite OK to make 90 deg angles of
the lower wires, it affects radiation very little.
ON4UN describes vertical loops in his book. Check out the loop-article on the
aformentioned site as well.
Despite what some people say I find that vertically polarised antennas work
