There was an article in one of the ARRL Antenna Compendiums that explored
the halfsquare in various arrangements.

If the horizontal wire isn't horizontal, as in running down a hill, the
wires aren't positioned correctly to do their stuff.  The pattern is
and degraded.

If you can put up a taller pole on the downhill side, that will help at that
You can shorten the uphill vertical by bending it out in the center, sort of
a knee bending.  It is still the right length electrically, but takes up a
bit less
vertical pole height if necessary.

Good luck and 73
