At present my Beverage is 390' long, 10' high and terminated at the 
N-Northeast end.  It does a pretty fair job at rejecting noise from certain 
local sources and comfortably pulling in signals that may be marginal on 
other antennas, but I don't notice a tremendous directional characteristic.  
Signals off the S-Southwest end are down a few dB's, and most noticeably, 
signals broadside to the wire are often down into the background noise.

As soon as the crops are harvested this fall, I am going to extend it to a 
total length of a little over 600' in the same direction.  Any seasoned 
Beverage users out there who might have an idea what difference in 
performance I can expect, if any?
